We parked on the higher of the two roads to the east of Lough Feeagh at around L977989 C and just started climbing onto the unfenced mountain. Doing this means that you are ascending from the SW of the peak, along the line of a cliff. The day was windy, with drizzle or rain for perhaps half the time. The ascent is relatively easy – by keeping near to the cliff you can avoid a fenced area which extends for an early part of the ascent. The land from this side is convex. The summit is reached across grass and rushes. As you near it the slope flattens out. The going underfoot turns from good to atrocious – almost unvegetated bare bog. The photo shows the indistinct summit area. No doubt the view to Lough Nambrackkeagh to the NE would be interesting as the cliffs are around 220m high but we couldn’t see even 10m clearly.
