Short Summary created by thomas_g  12 Apr 2014
The majority of people are going to approach from Knocknadobar via the col. While access is possible via the re-rentrant to the east, the going is tough and the spur further east above the lakes is preferable (although the traverse is a bit rocky). Views north to the Dingle peninsula are excellent. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/267/comment/5027/
