Picture: Summit pillar
 
The hard way.
by Colin Murphy  18 Apr 2022
I happened to be on the NW side of this hill so decided to see if I could approach from there. I found parking (for 1 car) just at the beginning of a forest rail at C39792 27630 starA and proceed along the track heading SE. This curved around to the SW and I followed it to C398 274 starB, where I turned SE up a rough but just doable forest ride. Emerging from this at C399 271 starCI found myself on open hillside and began to zig-zag up a steep, grassy slope over solid ground, finally reaching the access road at C39992 26730 starD, which then took me to the summit, marked by a trig pillar about 150m south of mast. A doable approach, if you like to make it tough on yourself! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/502/comment/23483/
