I'd have to agree with murphysw's uncle: it's a very boggy place. Even with the benefit of frozen ground it's still possible to lose your boot in a bog! The best way down (without retracing your steps) is by following the stream immediately west of the Grey Mare's Tail waterfall. Careful descent down into Shruell Gap is possible here. The attached picture shows the vista on the way down, taken just after a snow shower on 04.03.2006. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/445/comment/2221/
