At the Corrbut Gap to the south of Croaghaun there's a large litter-strewn car park at point S832568 B. Loads of TV sets have been abandoned here, which is rather pointless - the miscreants could have saved themselves the bother of driving up here by dropping them off at any Powercity or D.I.D.
Having jumped the gate across the road, we walked uphill (north) with the forest edge on our left. After a short while we crossed a forest track but kept going uphill to the underwhelming summit marked by an old wall at a right-angled turn in a forest track. It took about 15 minutes from the car park to the top. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/602/comment/4562/
