Fine top surrounded by small loughs
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy,  24 Apr 2015
This approach is from the west, incorporating Knockrower - consult that summit for initial approach. From Knockrower continue NEE, dropping down to a col at 500m before beginning a fairly gentle ascent over 1.5 km, the terrain is short grass and rocks mostly and easily navigable - although there is a steep rocky outcrop to overcome at roughly Point 953 787 A, which requires a little scrambling. Pass the Triangle Lake (more of an L-shape) and continue NE for another 500m to attain the summit, which is marked by a small cairn of sorts. The mountain doesn't have a particularly striking aspect, but benefits from being surrounded by multiple small loughs and extensive views, which make it quite an attractive climb. Time from Knockrower: 1 hour precisely. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/194/comment/4954/
