Park at Talo Sw (X00458 94555) where there is just room for one car without blocking the gate. Follow the forest track uphill as far as A (X00581 94954) where there is a track uphill. Follow this track to where the trees have been cleared and cross the clearing to the indistinct summit area. There are fine views of the Knockmealdowns from the summit.

Indistinct Summit
by Fergalh 16 Oct 2020
Followed Thomas_G's instructions and made my way to the summit. I agree the summit is indistinct although I personally thought it could be a large pole in the trees. If I am correct there is a very short (but never good) push-through the trees.. Great Views over river and Tallow though Linkback:
