New Comment: Many Ways of Ascent.
by sandman  Tue 18 Apr
Numerous options are available to you when deciding your ascent, I mention two. Option 1- which is the most direct park at L7968061187 A and through a gate surrounded by rhododendrons out on to open hill. Option 2 -park in a small lay-by at L8077260833 B, even though you have to cross two run down fences you will be rewarded with better views and underfoot conditions on the ascent. You also get to visit the lower summit en-route. Although a small hill great views over Killary and across to Inishturk. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/920/comment/18884/
