Tough but impressive top
by Colin Murphy  31 Aug 2015
There's no easy way up this hill as it is pretty isolated from everything around it in terms of elevation and pretty much every side of it is steep. In fact some approaches are precipitous. I had the misfortune to have to climb it from the NW after a day's weary bagging and was faced with a 350m steep ascent to round off my walk. I approached from Croaghanirwore and began ascending from the Barnes River at H005 868 B. The initial bit was ok, although there is a lot of knee-length grass to contend with. After a few hundred metres the slope steepens and more rocks and boulders appear. The ground finally eases at about 470m elevation. The summit is difficult to identify and there are multiple points marked by cairns, although the one my GPS led me to was at least 10m below another cairn. Suggest you visit the lot to be sure, to be sure! Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/408/comment/18278/
