Simple ascent to fine summit.
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy,  26 Nov 2013
From the south, drive through the village of Letterbarrow and continue for a mile or two till you come to the local soccer pitch. Turn left (signposted Disert Graveyard) and then right where there’s room to park on a grassy verge at G 882 869 A. Head up the track and pass an abandoned farmhouse, continue over a ditch into open hillside in a NNW direction. The slope is relatively easy going for about 1km, although quite boggy in parts. The final couple of hundred metres ascent is quite steep, and finishes with a large rocky outcrop marking the summit. You will also find a metal cross atop a metal box, which contains a visitors book! Return the way you came, for a round trip of 2 hours. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/409/comment/5168/
