Deceptively tough .. by kernowclimber   (Show all for Laghta Eighter Hill)
 
Steep, slippy and short but great views
by Fergalh  7 Oct 2019
I climbed from the east. There is room for one car parking at L86192 74706 B. Cross the ditch, then 100 metres of bog to the first ridge which leads to a small plateau. Cross this for the second climb to the summit. Descend veering a little south as this is a very steep and slippy hill. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1071/comment/20665/
