New summit point?
by Jamessheerin  28 Apr 2023
For an alternative way up and especially if you are stuck for time, turn at R09959 79101 starA, go through gate and park at abandoned house R10567 79047 starB. Be careful if ground clearance in your car is an issue? Take right fork at R11004 79072 starC, follow track left at R11128 78979 starD and it will curve around to the east... straight to the summit, eventually.
I would take issue with the grid reference given for this mountain though, its about 200m off. I found the highest spot to be I spent some time at this, checking all the high spots and lumps, both with GPS and altimeter. I would be reasonably certain that my grid ref is the proper summit?
And the tractor in the photo? It's not mine... I just borrowed it for the day! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1209/comment/18655/
