Dam fine

Followed Harry Goodman's excellent directions to bag this summit. One minor point - the 'sturdy bridge' is now in a bad state of repair and a large section of the concrete is missing. Still, with the Bann very low in the summer, it would be easy enough to descend to the river and hop cross. The initial bit of the route was very steep, but firm underfoot, the gradient easing a little only at around 370m. The summit itself is fairly well defined and has great views over the Spelga Reservoir & Dam. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/641/comment/23203/
