Simple ascent from Benbreen
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy  24 Jun 2014
Approach from south via Bengower/Benbreen or Benlettery/Bengower/Benbreen. From Benbreen it is almost a lazy stroll to this top, relative to other tops in this area. Head NNW for 500m, with a gentle ascent of under 30m. From Benbreen to top will take about ten minutes. The summit is strewn with rocks and boulders and marked by a small cairn.
