A tough climb! I climbed this hill as part in the Gus Tobin Galty ridge walk, unfortunately the visibility was very limited, which is very disappointing as the photos from the other comments on this hill are spectacular. Still it gives me a good excuse to go back on a better day! Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/29/comment/2403/
