Short Summary created by simon3, Colin Murphy  29 May 2022
Take the N59 west from Letterfrack and turn left along road L693 567 starA. Continue along this for about 6km - it is by turns badly potholed and quite drivable so take care.This will take you to within spitting distance of the summit, which is marked by a mast. Climb over a fence to south of road and close to mast you will see a small pile of stones marking the highest point. The view of the mast is understandably ugly - but turn the other way and it is almost majestic, with Lough Nahillion nestling beneath the western slopes of the Twelve Bens.
