Interesting views from a minor summit.
by simon3  1 Feb 2017
While it's never going to be hard to climb a 310m hill, this one does put up something of a fight when approaching it from the North, with defenses of mush rush, barbed gorse and little tracks.
The view from the top is interesting. The summit sits like the focus of the gigantic mirror of the Carnavaddy to Slieve Foye Cooley Ridge and thus affords a great overview of this ridge.
The attached photo however shows about 100 degrees of the land to the west of the summit. To the right of this is the little appreciated ridge to the south west of Clermont Carn which ends in the grandly named "The Castle", 384m.
To the left of the picture is Dundalk with coastal features such as Soldier's Point.
Right of centre is Slieve Gullion with some of the remains of the volcanic ring dyke such as Croslieve and Feede Mountain visible. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1119/comment/18837/
