Short Summary created by Harry Goodman,  25 Jul 2013
From H067963 A on the R253 take minor road SW and park at H0378894017 B. Walk NNW down a stone and gravel track and follow it along (swinging NNE) for some 1.5km. At a small tree plantation H040964 C leave the track and, keeping the trees on the left, ascend NE crossing a fence at H0417895602 D. Continue up NE and note a fence on the right heading up in the same direction. Follow it's line up and at its high point the summit cairn lies a few metres to the left at H0455095983 E. For relatively little effort the reward for this climb is a superb 360 degree panorama of the Donegal hills and mountains with the long line of the Bluestacks from Barnesmore to Agla Mt particularly prominent.
