Access track gives an ok ascent to start over rough ground
Short Summary created by jackill,  30 Jul 2012
Park at a little layby at V 80532 77882 A, room for 3 or 4 cars . Walked up the road
a short distance to V 80608 78026 B cross the sheep wire and head up the mountain on a rough track to another fence.
Cross this fence and head towards Lough Fadda and Lough Beg. After crossing the boulder field at Graignagower, head up a track that has been carved out on the mountainside, it seems to originate in Scarteen to the south.This track varies in quality but leads to about 410 meters.
From here the summit is reached by following a fence that tracks the edge of some rough rocky cliffs.At a fence junction cross the fence infrony of you and turn east for a short walk to the small summit cairn Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/284/comment/5044/
