PART 1. Climbed 29.5.05, basing walk on that described in Walk Guide West of Ireland. Take road on left at SW end of Lough Finn where there is ample parking in layby (891006 A). Follow road past house and through metal gate along shore of Lough. Reach an abandoned stone house and can head off for the hillside to climb past the terraces of cropped grass. Reach a level area and cross a fence before climbing again. Contour towards conifer plantation and will pick up a steep gulley which slashes through the mountain. Drop into and follow uphill beside very noisey stream after recent rainfall. Views are narrowed but still far reaching to the Derryveagh Mountains of Slieve Snaght and Dooish, with Errigal just peeking its head up behind. Gulley steepens considerably near the top - can climb out to left at various points for easy walking - and divides around large rock outcrop. I took the drier right side and liberal use of hands were called for over plenty of loose scree. At the head of the gulley the ground levels just below some rocky scree strewn tops. Stunning views on a day with excellent visibility - Muckish now also visible with the extra height gained and a long stretch of the W coastline. When reach the tops can see that the summit trig point is actually a distance away SSE. Pass along a couple of rocky rises, passing loughs, to reach the summit in 1.5 hours.
