Simple hop over from its big brother
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy  15 Apr 2016
This summit is usually done in conjunction with Slievetooey - see that summit for parking and initial ascent.
From Slievetooey summit head west for 1km, descending to 350m at G619 900 A. Turn north up the slope, which is initially steep but soon eases. There are some peat hags at the col and it is quite boggy, but not too bad. Heather as you ascend, quickly changes to rocks and short grass. Time between summits, 40 minutes. Top marked by a cairn.
