Great reward, little effort

Its an easy walk up if you follow John Desmonds instructions otherwise prepare to get your feet wet and your trousers torn. Great views over all 360 degrees, the Kerry mountains, Shehys, the Lee valley.This would be a good start to the day if, for example, you wished to walk the ridge to Gougane Barra.
