Hard to access the top
by paddyobpc  10 May 2024
Got to the summit this evening but the top is among thick conifers and almost impossible to reach, about 250/300m of very difficult thick trees and some briars, the top does clear for the last few metres. I would not advise it! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1092/comment/24202/
