Climbed 13.7.13 with Mrs and three kids. Parked at gaa pitch and headed along bangor trail. Similar to last comment turned up the slopes to top. Steep climb but very flat at top. Went down other side to Briska and back into Bangor. 4 and half hours. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/878/comment/15039/
