Fantastic views
by Fergalh  27 Oct 2020
I followed MichaelG55's route which was much easier than some of the other tops here as there is more stone and less elephant grass. Soon the top will be in sight and the trig pillar, once again, has a Sheep's Head Way marker on it. The views are well worth the climb to find out. You will not be disappointed Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1245/comment/20920/

An easy mountain to bag
by MichaelG55  16 Sep 2020
An easy climb from V891431 starA where there is parking for two cars. Just a case of popping over the stile then following the Sheep's Head Way marker posts to the summit. Also look out for painted arrows on rock outcrops. Up and down in an hour. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1245/comment/20887/
