Climbed this mountain from Maumeen on a bright and sunny St. Patrick's day. Very much enjoyed the spectacular views. And very sorry I could not take pictures (lend out the camera) In spite of all warnings I was still surprised by the steep and tricky descent to Mám Ochóige. Also the descent from the col to the west involves a nasty steep grass slope. Best to opt for the direct line down here and to keep the stream on your right hand. I think this climb would be a bit easier ascending then descending. This should give you a better view of the layout of the mountain which should simplify route finding a bit. Also there should be less risk of slipping on the treacherous steep grass slopes. You can view and download my GPS trail on http://www.wikiloc.com/wikiloc/view.do? id = 325305 F.
