Clare's highest mountain. Always a great enticement "towering"(at a mere 532 metres) over the killaloe to Tuamgraney road. Its a hard mountain to get to if you dont know the area. I set off from the Pipers side and climbed twords the forrestry roads (which are vast and confusing). At a metal gate I decided to take a steep route and climb the face right beside a barbed wire fence. Very steep but satisfying route. Got to the top in late evening as the mist set in. Very hard to find the true summit as its like a plateau up there. Lots of rusting metal and junk there too. Great views of Lough Derg. Came accross the carcass of a cow that had gotten trapped in soft bog in the fire track. Reminder that every mountain has to be respected. Great evening of solitude Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/390/comment/3277/
