Steep sided jutting peak.
Short Summary created by simon3,  13 Jun 2013
This is an extraordinarily shaped piece of rock jutting out into Rabach's Glen. Most likely it will be accessed as part of the circuit of that Glen. It could be reached from the north in Rabach's Glen or south from the Glanmore River side. The north face of the summit is a nearly sheer 300m, however the south side is a relatively benign slope.
A somewhat comparable peak would be Ben Lugmore in the Mweelrea Mountains and a nearer comparison would be Droppa near Cummeenbaun.
Needless to say this could be a dangerous place in wind or wintery conditions. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/391/comment/5150/
