Sauce Creek is derived from Irish sás, 'noose', a name referring to the fact that waves and currents make it very difficult to leave this cove by boat.   Faill an tSáis is the 794th highest place in Ireland. Faill an tSáis is the most northerly summit and also the most easterly in the Brandon Group area.

Parked at the Car Park at Brandon Point (Sron Bhroin) i.e. at the very end of the northward road from Brandon village. Followed David Herman's route ('Hill Walkers Kerry') hugging the coast (as opposed to sticking to the high ground). This is a fantastic route through steep and rugged valleys, streams tumbling to meet the sea with the grinding of rocks in the heavy swell far below. Hard going though as one has to gain the height and lose it several times. The Sas is a revelation as one approaches it from this end. The sky was blue with a strong swell from the NW. Masatiompan towered like a volcano over the surf on a desert island. Great rewards indeed! Returned by the official route across the high ground laid out by the Cloghane walking group. Understated as compared with the outward route - the coastal route is much more exciting. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/694/comment/6547/
