Good views reward a slog.
Short Summary created by simon3,  27 Apr 2011
Look east in Glengarriff and you will see Derrograne and its southerly spur (Cobduff) on the skyline. One way of getting to it is from the Priests Leap col at around V 9853 6108 A or you could try off the Beara Way at around V553963 B (not tested)
The first mentioned route from the col is around 4k SW over useable ground though cut up in places by bikes or quads. You can choose whether or not to include the Priest's Leap summit en route.
Reaching the summit you will be rewarded with fine views over Bantry Bay including Whiddy Island and beyond. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/554/comment/5313/
