We approached the summit from Slievenaman Rd at 271 253 A, picking up the wall which we followed to the summit after a 25 minute slog in the heat. I agree with MadFrankie -- it's a rather unremarkable summit, but on a day like today it all seemed worth it, with some lovely views over to the Spelga Dam reservoir.
