Easy access but boggy from the north
by thomas_g  8 May 2012
Parked at W15234 62101 A (room for 1 car). Proceed up the track to Lough Nambrackderg and skirted the lake and onwards to the top of Shehy more. It was very boggy around the lake, be sure and bring gaiters.
The climb up to the ridge is fairly easy and once there you can follow the fence all the way to the top which appears to be marked by 3 sticks stuck in the ground.
As always seems to happen, it was foggy when I reached the top, which of course cleared as soon as I descended, so I can't comment on the views to the north, but those to the south were lovely.
There appear to be a myriad of good tracks to the south of the ridge, I would think with permission from the farmer (who I saw driving his tractor), this would make more a drier ascent. In fact there appears to be a track that goes all the way to W145 597 B (the dip between Shehy More and Shehy SW), which would be a good start to doing both tops.
On your way back down I suggest you shirt west of the lake and make your way to the 336m spot height above Lough Nambrackderg. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/365/comment/6792/
