After returning to the car park from Mt. Leinster, I decided to do this one as the weather had thwarted my plans to do other peaks in the Blackstairs that day, and I wanted a second peak from my days rambles in this range. It really is nothing, 15 minutes on a rough path up a gentle slope to the summit cairn. The heavy mist obscured the views but it did shift for a fleeting second and the glimpse I got was fairly breathtaking alright. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/412/comment/1960/
