A bit of a slog, but otherwise simple.
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy  8 May 2023
Parking for a couple of cars at H5895797010 starA. Cross the road and begin a steepish ascent up a grassy slope. The grassy is gradually replaced by heather and rougher terrain. At H58492 97103 starB, two fences intersect, turn directly north and follow the fence through the boggy terrain. You will have to lose most of the height you gained earlier, dropping back down to 450m ascent, before the fence veers NW, and continues all the way to the high point, which is unremarkable, marked only by a slightly elevated peat mound. Good views looking back towards Dart & Sawel Mts. Allow 1.5 hours for return journey. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/490/comment/5249/
