A free feast of fraughans
by acorn  16 Aug 2013
This is probably not the easiest way up, but it worked despite the scratches.
Park at R665 168 A. Follow the track and take the first left. Continuing on you will come to an opening on your right at R67130 16715 D, a rough stoney track between deep banks-is this a ride ? Walk uphill. After a short time the track swings left but you take the grassy uphill option straight ahead. Continue to highest point of the track at R670 161 E then head east through rough heathery ground to gain the summit, approx 500m. Shorts not a good idea for this route but the plentiful fraughans on the high ground and wild raspberries lower down helped ease the pain. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/684/comment/15075/
