Unpleasantly prominent
Short Summary created by simon3, jackill  1 Apr 2012
Park on the roadside next to a gate at W08543 82689 A, room for 1 car.
Climb the gate and walk along a track crossing a small stream and another gate.
As you reach the start of the climb cross a muddy track and over a high wire fence.
Start up an unpleasent boggy ridge interspersed with rock edges keeping generally on the high ground.
As you reach the near the summit the ground becomes covered with low grass.
The summit is unmarked and generally flat.
Fine views though due to Coolcurtogas prominence. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/719/comment/5478/
 
Don't be put off, it's not that bad
by thomas_g  3 May 2013
Climbed this today, it looks awful from the road, but once you're on the slope it's not that bad. There is the odd ankle twisting hole, but it's fairly easy to navigate the shelves to the top. About 90 mins round trip. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/719/comment/14986/
