Dwarfed by it's more frequented neighbours, this is nevertheless a tempting diversion if you're doing the Coumloughra Circuit.
When the steep Hydro Road swings right, continue NE. There's a small loss of height before making the steepish ascent to the summit, with it's small cairn. From here you can descend to a saddle and the steep ascent to big brother Skregmore. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/321/comment/2306/
