Great views in a less frequented place.

I approached the hill from Crohane over some very rough ground, mostly in cloud, rain and mist. Luckily for me, the sun came out and this is the view north from the summit. As others have written, the ground is tough going with tussocks of grass hiding rocks and potholes. In some places, in the descent from Bennaunmore, I was wading through waist high grass and ferns taller than me! I would recommend full leg cover as well as gaiters, as the ground is also very boggy. Still, a great day out! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/606/comment/20827/
