Short Summary created by simon3  18 May 2024
Like all of the summits on this EW ridge it has a magnificent view of the islands of Clew Bay, the Achill to Nephin skyline and the south Mayo mountains such as Mweelrea.

One start is at L 93582 79207 starA which is the start of a track that goes NE to Skelp (EW Name). When you reach the highest point on this track, go left along a wall towards the top.

You can start at around L9494 8095 starB. There is a limited amount of parking around. Follow the waymarked way until you reach a stile allowing access to the heather covered upland at around L 9443 8030 starC, which is the same place as the previous way up reaches.

The summit has low heather on the top and a small cairn of stones. It is easy to walk over largely untracked ground to its eastern neighbor, Teevenacroaghy.

This summit was surveyed in May 2024 and found to be just short of the 500m to be an Arderin Linkback:
