Climbed Dunaff on 5. November 2013, shortly after having climbed nearby Binnion, via the route described by Harry Goodman and Three5Four0. Nothing much to add to their worthwhile comments, except maybe that caution would be required on the short section of the faint grassy path leading down the re-entrant described by Three5Four0, especially on wet conditions. The rest of the walk is a nice stroll with a few steeper parts, which combines the pleasure of hillwalking -with rewarding views all the way up and down- and that of being close to the ocean and hearing the waves washed down the cliffs. I did not spend much time along the cliffs near the summit area though, as the wind grew stronger, bringing in some rain which turned into hail as I reached the top, but hopefully it did not last. Allow about 1h30 return from the pier. The picture was taken the previous day from the top of the Urris Hills. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1021/comment/15283/
