Started off at Glashagh Bridge (H 636 990 C) Going is fair enough, a few sheughs to negotiate here and there on the way up but sheep have vegatation well kept down for most part until you reach the heathered top and the road disappears from behind. Then its not too far to summit marked naturally by a piece of raised bog. Good view of sawel and surrounding central sperrins with benbradagh to the north and derryveagh mountains to northwest. Is a pleasant enough climb taking less than an hour for the round trip. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/601/comment/2831/
