Bump at the end of Buckaun ridge.
Short Summary created by simon3  14 Aug 2018
This summit is almost an Arderin and almost a Carn. It makes a handy extra stop on the fringes of Maumtrasna, a place notoriously devoid of relief. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1512/comment/20012/

Cliffy north edge.

This is a picture of Buckaun East taken from the valley below.. Obviously the safest way to go up and down this is to the left or south of the ridge. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1512/comment/20016/
