Made a quick climb as per John Desmond's route, but in mist and gathering dusk. Moderately challenging in these circumstances and I feel that Madfrankies pic of the crags underrates their extent on the East side.
Moving SW for 300 mtrs I then descended easily south and contrived to find myself in the gathering dark on a by-way leading to the N71 rather than the one leading toward my arranged rendezvous at 917 752 C. Thanks to the kindness of a passing biker and despite wilful ignoring by many 07 plates order was restored without invoking the rescue serrvices Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/348/comment/2936/
