From the SE
by markmjcampion  14 Nov 2020
I approached from the SE, having turned off the N59 at L75135 48710 D. I drove as far along the road as I could and then headed cross country. It had a wild and remote feel to it.
First I hit the stream at approx L72659 51631 E and followed it north for about 500m before heading due West up to the summit. Rough enough under foot on the pull up to the top. I wasn't expected so much man made intrusion at the summit but it was a grand couple of hours nonetheless. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1148/comment/21353/
