Climbed this last weekend following the excellent directions from Jaak. Parked in the Ballycuggeran Forest amenity area. NB: Stay on the new path to the summit that Jaak describes, following it around to the right when it meets a double gate. There were some v boggy spots near the top : but boots were fine. Would need wellies after heavy rain. All the debris etc seems to have been cleared away from the top as far as I saw: well done to cgriff and all who highlighted this! Super views at summit & on way up. Nice forest too. I had no problems with landowners, tG, but then I did climb during the Clare v Limerick match and there was no-one around!
