An awful trudge
by Colin Murphy  29 Jun 2022
I followed the quicker route in the short summary. Be warned that the track leading to S01331 71186 starC is in a terrible state thanks to forest vehicles churning it into a rutted quagmire (and that's in June!) It is also strewn most of the way with detritus from tree felling, through which you have to pick your way. Having gotten through the trees on the left, the final 200m climb is a leg-wearying trudge up through knee-deep heather and a fairly steep slope. Pleasant views at summit, but one for the baggers only, I'd say. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/677/comment/23573/
