Short Summary created by jackill, Geo,  19 Aug 2013
Park your car at Coumban forest entrance R81985 18557 A where there is room for 8-10 cars.
Walk uphill on a gentle slope and turn left at the first junction where you can.
Follow the forest road to R81899 19837 B where there is a rough ride all the way to the summit. As of August 2013 the trees up as far as this ride have been harvested, but the ride-line (apart from a couple of fallen trees, easily by-passed) is the easiest to climb. There is a brief strip of tree's just before the summit which now has it's eastern flank felled and allows some views of the higher Galty range Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/512/comment/5271/
