New Comment: The inside track
by Colin Murphy  3 Sep 2021
This summit has a reputation for its leg-wearying, knee-high heather, however I'm pleased to say that there is an approach that is considerably easier. Upon reaching N 21744 01735 D, instead of heading NE directly for the summit, turn north, where you'll see a one-person track through the waist-high reedy grass. This is mucky in places but quite passable. At around N2174 0190 E this turns east, and although the track seems to disappear every now and then, it's worth persisting as it improves a good deal later. When you reach about 400m altitude, the narrow track is much more defined, and allows for a very easy ascent all the way to the summit, which is marked by two rocks propping each other up. The summit area is a fairly featureless, broad expanse of heather. Whoever is responsible for beating out this track, I thank you! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/508/comment/23258/
