The biggest challenge here is clambering up the steep wet peaty bank from the Slieve Bloom Way. Ascend the firebreak for five minutes. Duck under a few branches. Step into a few holes. Take a photo or two and descend the way you came up. My GPS claimed 900 meters of distance and 36 meters ascent. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/796/comment/3403/
