There is a rough stone track about 200 metres south of The Gap Car Park which gives a slightly firmer footing than the approach directly up the mountain. Unfortunately the track ends at about 450m (and is very steep), after which you can cut directly north west across a terrain of light heather and grass, which isn't too treacherous. The semi-ruined cairn that marks the top doesn't appear to be quite the summit as I noticed about 30 metres away behind a fence that someone has recently erected a small upright stone, and my GPS confirmed this as a couple of metres higher than the cairn. The summit's a bit dull, but on a fine day the views of Sugarloaf & Knockmeal down are majestic. (see photo) Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/229/comment/3230/
