Fine view from 'cairn'.
Short Summary created by paddyhillsbagger,  4 Jan 2012
There is a rough track at G720410 A which winds its way up the East face of Copes Mtn. This almost takes you onto a rough boggy summit plateau where if you head roughly ENE to the' highest' part of the plateau a very low cairn has been 'erected'. Fine views are afforded of Glencar and its waterfall from this spot. An alternative route is from the sister summit of Crockauns G759409 B. Head W from the summit and pick up a fence which runs roughly NW across the alternatively heathery, boggy and tussocky terrain between the two summits. There are some small rises and fences to cross, but you will reach the small cairn in about an hour. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/612/comment/5371/
