Long trek to summit along ridge
by Fergalh  8 Jun 2021
Approached this from Derrynafulla SW Top by dropping down the ridge to the col between . Ground is reasonable when I did but not advisable after rain. The forest at the eastern end of the Derrynafulla ridge is narrow and not thick so a push through is straightforward. There are numerous fences to traverse as well. The rough track from the col (on OS Map 85) that leads north to the road goes through private land and the farmer has indicated he does not want hillwalkers in his farm.
