New Comment: Easy start, tough finish.
by Colin Murphy  4 Oct 2021
I note that the last comment on this hill was 6 years ago, and can report that the forest ride has all but vanished under a new plantation and growth of reeds and heather. Having left the main forest track at R81899 19837 B, I did manage to follow several old winding and badly rutted tracks some of the way up, but these eventually disappeared and had to clamber up the final bit through knee-deep vegetation and rotting tree stumps. Not a hill I intend to revisit. Baggers only need apply. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/512/comment/23294/
