A lesser visited summit on the Iveragh peninsula
by TommyV  12 Jun 2019
This route starts to the West of Lough Currane at V59319 65133 G and follows the Kerry Way South for about two kilometres. At the col known as the Windy Gap it is time to leave the way marked trail and climb a very steep few hundred metres to reach the unmarked summit. The hill is out on the South West of the Iveragh peninsula so the views are quite expansive. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/362/comment/20544/
