Long route from the south.
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy,  18 Jan 2019
Not normally done in isolation, this top usually forms part of a walk involving Dromderalough itself or Mangerton. One approach is from the north, which has the advantage of a gently rising track for most of the journey, but the disadvantage of being a 12km return trip. Park at V984 848 A and follow the stoney track south for about 4km, which takes you just past the Devil's Punchbowl. Follow a curving route around the southern edge above the lough for about 1km to reach Mangerton summit. For there Dromderalough NE is just over 1km SW, descending to about 620 before the short climb to this not overly distinct top. The terrain on the final part of this trip is quite rough - peat hags, uneven ground, marshy in places. From car to summit took 2.5 hours.

This summit is nothing more than a piece of high ground on your way up to Mangerton from the South-West. It is a bit difficult to pick out as you look at it from Dromderalough although I just happened to get a shadow of a cloud in the right place at the time which shows it in the attached picture.The surrounding area is a bit boggy although as you ascend Mangerton, the going gets easier. The views from it are nice but nothing different from what you will have seen already on your way up to it. The only recommendation I would have for it is that it is a nice spot to stop and catch your breath before you begin the long ascent of Mangerton itself.

VL Number 273 bagged....
by Colin Murphy  18 Jan 2019
My final Vandeleur-Lynam! Unfortunately No. 273 wasn't the most distinctive summit (when I came off Mangerton I couldn't even pick it out on the landscape) , but the views from the top are tremendous, thanks to the presence of a couple of tiny loughs in the immediate vicinity. Anyway, that's the Arderins. VL's and County Highpoints done. Next up my Local 100! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/183/comment/20339/

Odd-looking formations
by Colin Murphy  18 Jan 2019
On my approach to the summit I came across a large field of hundreds of these rather striking formations, which I think are are moss-covered boulders, but which looked like giant green ant-hills or some part of a Star Trek set... Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/183/comment/20340/
