I decided to approach this mountain from R974 209 A which is a forest entrance on the side of the main road between Cahir and Mitchelstown.I followed the track through the forest and across a sheepwire fence out on to the open hills. The track marked on the map has stone walls on both sides however its after disappearing into the bog in many places and it is advisable to walk along the edge of it rather than on the track itself. This track leads all the way to the summit. The photo is from the summit (which on review, I took GPS co-ords of R95121 25070 B for) looking across to Sturrakeen with Slieveanard behind. In the distance you can make out Slievenamon in the centre and the Knockanaffrin ridge of the Comeraghs on the right. A good walk to give you a new perspective on the well walked Galtys.
