Eskatarriff East is one of those places that looks incredibly intimidating near to. And indeed the area has had at least one accident, when on 10th October 2010 Kerry Mountain Rescue team were placed on standby after a female walker broke her ankle on the ridge just below Eskatarriff. The Team were subsequently stood down after it was confirmed that the casualty had been successfully airlifted by the Shannon Coast Guard helicopter.

However from across the glen its cliff doesn't appear so steep and it is surrounded on the left and right by higher points on the ridge. Even behind it Hungry Hill looms in the distance. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/391/comment/15020/
