Eastern Sentry
Short Summary created by march-fixer,  29 Aug 2013
This top stands sentry duty on the far eastern edge of the Hag's Glen. It is at a perfect collecting point for access up along The Bone from the floor of the glen below or as a marker point between Cnoc an Chuillin East Top and Knocknapeasta. Either way, it can be a very important locating point in poor weather conditions.

The views from the top are panoramic, weather permitting! It is magical to look across the glen and soak in the majesty of Carrauntoohil standing proud to the west. The slope drops away sharply to the west into a small coum lake with crystal clear water. The conditions underfoot are good but it is essential, in bad visibility, to be ultra cautious as there are dangerous slopes to the west, south east and north. Be sure you know where you are before moving on! Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/6/comment/4766/
