Only a short diversion from the Torc path, yet only 27 out of the 222 that have logged Torc Mountain, took in its west top as well. And as Harry Goodman says, the views are good, so there is no reason not to visit this poor neglected top! Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/550/comment/6575/
