After reaching the summit, I elected to head back to the car rather than continue along the ridge to Bran Scultair. As you can see from the photo, there's some newish planting to push through, but it's less than 100 metres of shoving through the spruce so it's not so bad. Sheet 68 appears to be accurate in its depiction of the tracks in the forest. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/471/comment/2861/
