Steep ascent from north.
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy,  17 Feb 2014
Park at V528 872 A (Point A). Proceed up through a steep field alongside a stream for 100m, crossing a fence where you'll see a narrow rocky track. Turn left along track for a few hundred metres before ascending directly south via a steep heather-covered spur. The slope becomes less steep at about 400m altitude and the heather is replaced by short grass, which makes the going considerably easier. There are great views over Roads Lough and along the precipitous valley sides to the left. At point V533 862 B (Point B) you will emerge into a broad, almost flat area between Kells Mountain and the East top. Turn right and ascend the gently sloping NE spur of the mountain for about 500m. The summit is marked by a cairn. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/224/comment/4984/
