The only way you'll ever ascend this one on it's own is if you accidentally leave it out of the various natural circuits to which it belongs. That's what happened to me, so it was more a case of getting it "done" for List purposes than anything else. I went in the early morning and was pleasantly surprised with the 360 degree vistas. I parked at the entrance to the old mine on the road from Laragh to the Wicklow Gap and simply went straight up, and down. Two things to watch out for. I suspect that not many walk this way so there'll be times when you will have to wade through heather with no obvious path, and , more importantly, there are a couple of places where you can break a leg or worse because the heather camouflages massive holes. I almost came a cropper during a somewhat exuberant descent!

Note: ALL information such as Ascent, Length and Creator time taken etc should be regarded as approximate. The creator's comments are opinions and may not be accurate or still correct.
Your time to complete will depend on your speed plus break time and your mode of transport. For walkers: Naismith's rule, a rough and often inaccurate estimate, suggests a time of 0h 59m + time stopped for breaks
Note: It is up to you to ensure that your route is appropriate for you and your party to follow bearing in mind all factors such as safety, weather conditions, experience and access permission.
