Picture: High point
 
Rough ascent through knee-high growth.
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy  14 Sep 2023
Often done in conjunction with either Collin Top or Soarns Hill. One approach is to start from the Cargan Dam car park at D19239 17217 starA . Cross the dam and turn left, crossing two stiles and following a narrow trail along the south side of the reservoir, crossing over a small bridge to roughly D19759 17078 starB, where you can strike out in a southerly direction towards the summit. The climb is gentle (roughly 140m over 2km) but the terrain is very rough and covered in long reeds, knee-high heather and equally long grass almost the whole way. The high point is an unmarked heathery mound. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/652/comment/5411/
