Accounts of the ascent out of Poisoned Glen describe either the steep and loose gully at its head or an easier but slightly circuitous route that crosses the deer fence on the left. However, there appears to be an obstacle-free route ascending from near the head of the glen to the right, which turns left near the top to follow a shallow grassy gully up to the ridge. Sorry I have no personal experience of this. Possibly this north-facing slope is unpleasantly wet. Has anyone tried it? Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/283/comment/1596/
