Short Summary created by jackill,  5 Mar 2011
Start at R 983 089 A where there is a decent carpark .
Cross the tarred road at the carpark entrance and you will see a muddy track leading east across the bog which leads you onto the main Avondhu way track after about 300 meters.
You can also turn north on the tarred road and walk 200 meters to where the Avondhu way crosses the road (just after a warning sign on dangers of fog etc.).
Once on this rocky way follow its twists uphill for approx 2 kms until you gain a plateau at 600 mtrs elevation.
The track at this point can be followed straight ahead or to the right(west).
Turn right and cross the plateau, the track starts to go downhill again at a waymarked way post.
Follow the boggy worn track down to the forest edge over a stile and east along a good track, , as the track comes to a right angle turn, climb the ditch and cross the bog to the summit.
the summit is at a fence turn, marked by a small gathering of stones. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/229/comment/4989/
