Took in Cnoc Ramhar on the return loop from Dromderalough and Knockbrack. We descended to the col with the 'Shaking Rock' hill and contoured to the south of the latter until we reached Paddy MacConagle's famous (rock) Spike at around V919 787 C. Some of the roughest ground I have ever traversed, especially west/downhill of the spike. Returned to the car at V916 796 D. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/354/comment/14857/
