Dizzying heights

Luckily there was no wind and I managed to stand upright briefly on the summit, which is an area of about 1m x
2m, but I would not recommend this on a gusty day as on all sides you there are precipitous drops. I would say it is the pointiest hill or mountain I've ever scaled in Ireland. Pic show the scary view looking down from the top - taken from a sitting position! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/193/comment/18000/
