Not a CLEAR route to the top!!
by Dessie1  21 Aug 2013
I climbed this hill (as the usual by the awkward way) starting at the roadway to the old lighthouse.I left the lighthouse and tried to head directly NE for the summit cairn through fields of gorse along the coastline.After 3 fields I got completely stuck in waist high gorse (in shorts not a good idea!) so decided to backtrack to the main road to the lighthouse and take the route that everyone else had taken to the summit.So much for trailblazing! Excellent views from the summit and crystal clear skies made the roundabout journey worth the effort. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1048/comment/15086/
