A great reward for a leisurely stroll
by bertandally  18 Mar 2019
We parked up at the entrance to the comms mast access road at G6186975866 C as we thought the access road was the best option for us as we had our 6 year old with us and regardless the recent weather would have made a direct ascent pretty risky we thought. We understand from local people that there are no problems with people going up the access road to reach the summit though we tried and failed to get direct confirmation today as no-one was home at the adjacent property. Lots of sheep here though and with the lambing season ongoing we made the decision to leave the dog at home. It was pretty easy going and the path is pretty much 2k on the nose, so it's a pleasant stroll. After admiring the views from the cairn area, we thought at first we couldn't make it over to the South edge in order to get a glimpse of trá na nglór and trá bán at the same time as we often swim at both beaches, but we found a well trodden route in the end. A little wind shelter is constructed in the little depression on the main bit of the summit and would make for welcome relief if the weather changed. Amazing views up here of Muckross Head and even with poor visibility today we could still easily make out St John's Point 10k away. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1181/comment/20460/
