Proceeding east to west, you descend from the north east top onto a grassy platform but do not need to venture onto the knife edge. You escape through the band of rocks to the right by descending a short chimney, much easier than it looks at first sight. GWPR's photograph (in Brandon Mountain portfolio) was taken near the foot of the chimney, and shows the way forward from there. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/35/comment/1753/
