Just follow the wall.
Short Summary created by jackill,  3 Sep 2014
Park at the back of Spelga reservoir on the roadside next to the track that accesses the reservoir, room for 8-10 cars.
Head west following the wall to the summit of Pigeon rock, follow the wall southeast for about 300 meters then south west to J25050 23940 A where you will need to head north west for 150 meters to reach the summit area. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/344/comment/5104/
