On its own, like a lost puppy! As mentioned already, this mountain seems only to be visited as part of another trek. All the same it is worth the effort to go to the summit.
I went there from the summit of Seahan and it takes only a few minutes across the saddle. The middle of the saddle can be a bit soft and wet under foot, but nothing to taxing. There is a clear path straight from one summit to the other. The summit needs a little TLC as there is a small quagmire surrounding the marker point.
There was a magnificent view E over to the Sugar Loaf and S down over Blessington Lakes. Do not spoil the job for a 'hap-worth of tar' and visit this summit if you are near Seahan or the other nearby summits. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/247/comment/6778/
