This was the last hill on our circuit of the Nire Valley, and boy was it a spectacular way to finish. If you are in the area and just want a short walk go for this one. The ridge as you ascend is very sharp, falling away steeply to the north and is no slouch on the south for much of it. The views are great, looking south to the amphitheatre of Coumfea and the lakes and east to the farmland of Waterford and southeast Tipp. On the North side the tree-line comes up surprisingly high, lord knows how they planted them on that slope. We reached the rocky outcrop that forms the peak but as the weather was coming in rapidly we declined to clamber over the rocks to the true summit for safety reasons (see comments about my recent wussiness on Knocknalingady :-)...).
We then made our way down to the fence that travells southwest along the spur to the lay-by where we had parked the car. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/74/comment/1267/
