From the Kerry Way at R 910 768 B to the east of Peakeen we threaded our way up through crags to gain a northern shoulder. It’s a bit of a pull, but after the exertion of Knocknaguish I was enjoying a second wind. There’s a brief scramble through more cragginess shortly before gaining the summit, a trig-pillar perched atop a rocky outcrop. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/348/comment/2748/
