Went up this from the NE side, there is an obvious gully on this side and makes the ascent quite quick once one gets to the base of the rock itself where it rises out of the slope around it - maybe about 15 minutes. The east (Lough Gouragh) side looks much trickier and would imagine ropes would be necessary. 4 of us climbed it, and overall thought it a real thrill, though it really tested my nerves and those of one more of the group. We came down the same route, and continued on up Stumpa an tSaimh ridge to Beenkeragh. Would definitely go back and do it again, the view from the top is great and it's a great adrenaline rush, but think a head for heights necessary. There isn't much room at the top, and it's important to take care on this one. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/193/comment/3768/
