Simple ascent from SW
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy,  24 Jun 2014
Usually done in conjunction with other tops such as Maumonght itself. Driving towards Clifden along the N59, go 2km past the Benlettery Hostel and take the minor road on the right. Continue along this for approx 3km, passing forestry on right where you will find parking space. Head NE across gentle slope for 2km, ascent becoming a little steeper only near the summit, which is unmarked and only identified by a slightly raised grassy bump.
