Fantastic views

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/
