I could stay up here for days
Short Summary created by jackill  21 Mar 2011
Park in the car park at B94291 19734 A.From the car park corner you can follow a wet track on either side of the stream up to the col between Errigal and Mackoght. Just after a large cairn at B94151 20379 B turn right and drop down initially before heading up to the summit. Try to follow the crest of one of the rock ridges that sweep down the mountains flanks , this makes the going much easier. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/349/comment/5109/
