After a dry spell the track up the Luganure brook, which lies almost directly north of the SE top, makes for a very pleasant ascent of this mountain and offers lovely views of Glendasan on a clear day.
I started early from Glendalough, heading west along the St Kevin's Way track until I reached the ruins of mines close to the car park, around D (T097 982)
. When the Kevin's Way track turns slightly northward toward the road, you can follow a less defined track leading west initially, uphill, before turning south as it meanders around a number of spoil heaps and a few concealed adits. There is a bit of erosion along this track, and it may be a little wet in parts in winter. However, it is easily followed to the "summit" area.
I came across a herd of goats with shapely horns and heavy looking coats, as well as a pair of not so easily spooked deer.
From there, a return eastwards down the spine of Camaderry towards Glendalough is picturesque, and some plastic matting has helped consolidate the ground underfoot on this route.
I have previously descended the track to the Upper Lake of Glendalough, which I located the top of near E (T10870 97098)
but it is quite steep and could be slippery after rain. Not near as pleasant a descent as the main track down the east ridge. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/1496/comment/23215/
