Heathery boulder topped peak at the SE corner of the Reeks.
Short Summary created by simon3  4 May 2015
This a summit whose highest point is one of a number of large boulders. In their immediate vicinity there are fine views of Purple Mountain, much of the Reeks and from east of here are views into the Gap of Dunloe.
It can be reached from the south at the head of the Gap of Dunloe around V870833 A. Be careful to pick a good route for ascent and particularly descent amongst the cliffs here. An intermediate spur on this route is marked Drishana on the OS 1:50000.
It can also be easily reached from Cnoc an Bhráca which in turn can be reached from the track ascending from V877883 B south of Kate Kearney's Cottage, Gap of Dunloe.
Please note. Descending from this summit is not possible in a number of places to the east. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/179/comment/4939/
