Rugged little number.

One look at this little hill from the Glengarriff camp site I was staying at was enough to explain its lack of popularity maybe. Huge ribs of bare rock in tiers all along this side made for an entertaining assent on the dry rock straight up from the campsite with a few false summits before the high point is reached.
