From the summit there is a clear view of Lough Muskry. This nestles under Greenane.
HC Hart [Climbing in the British Isles 1895] was much impressed by Lough Muskry, waxing lyrical and valedictory “.. Still grander, however, are the cliffs above Lough Muskry. These tower to a height of about 1,200 ft in great terraces and vegetated walls above the north and north-east ends of the lake. .. Should the climber get pounded here (as not seldom happens) let him beware of undue haste. A mouthful of food here has a wonderful effect in steadying the nerves.” Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/307/comment/560/
