I recently posted a photo outlining a route up Knocklaur. From the angle it was taken, it doesn't portray the immense bulk and dramatic profile of this northern spur. This one gives a better impression. Taken from around L928 648 A while descending from Devilsmother North Top. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/414/comment/6686/
