Untracked hard ascents for superb views.
Short Summary created by simon3, Colin Murphy  30 Sep 2015
There is parking for a couple of cars at V 849 817 A. Cross the gate into some woodland and proceed along a short track (paved with concrete slabs) into a grassy field. Head SSE, making sure to avoid drifting towards the almost impassable rhododendron bushes to the right. As you ascend the terrain becomes a mixture of long grass and boulders. The slope is steep and some scrambling and zig-zagging is required. Slope eases at around 300m or point V855 815 B, where you should veer SSW. The final 100m ascent is also steep and requires further navigation around rocky outcrops, although all quite doable.

Alternatively from the south start from the T junction at V839786 C Walk NW of this beside Cummeralooderry stream until you gain the flattish ground where the stream turns left (West) at around say V836794 D. Then head for the summit. Don't go up or down beside the lower parts of the Glasheengarriff stream because the way is covered in high rushes, with water and rock in the cracks.

The summit is quite defined, marked by a small grassy mound rising above the rocks and topped by a small pile of stones. 1.5 hours to summit by either route. Allow an hour for descent, which is tricky given the many rocky obstacles. Spectacular views, particularly to the east and north. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/442/comment/5201/
