Heading for the narrows
Short Summary created by jackill  31 Oct 2010
Park on the Kerry side of the tunnel at about V901 605 A where there is room for a few cars on the roadside.
Walk down the road towards kerry looking for a grassy ramp on your left
Go up the grassy ramp to gain the ridge.
Head west along the ridge to the summit area of Baurearagh Mountain crossing 3 fences on the way.
Drop down after Baurearagh Mountain and a short climb passing some large exposed rock sheets will bring you to the summit area.
If you intend to carry on after this towards the Caha plateau please note that the ridge narrows significantly after this , care is needed as the cliffs to the north are quite steep. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/379/comment/5138/
