Picture: Eagles Rock from the Slieve Foye approach
A short but sweet scramble
by IainT 16 Aug 2017
One of the few Irish summits that needs the use of hands by the easiest route. Those happy with exposure can get a good airy scramble (grade 2, pushing 3 maybe), by slanting left up an obvious ramp from the col with the main ridge of Slieve Foye. Step off the top of a huge flake and up lovely rough slabs above. Don't fall off! Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/1461/comment/19687/

Slippery when wet!
by hivisibility 16 Dec 2015
I took this snap looking back at Eagle's Rock while heading towards Slieve Foye's NW top. Om approaching from Raven's Rock summit you descend from the Eagle down the small cleft you can see towards the right of the rock formation. If you want to claim the summit a bit of a scramble is involved to attain the peak, but care should be taken if the surface is wet or there are strong winds to counter, as there's enough of a drop to cause damage. By taking your time you should be ok. Marvellous views to be had from the summit. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/1461/comment/18408/
