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: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1461/comment/19687/
