I went up the gap in bright sunshine in October and it is a gentle enough climb to the top. I had my lunch in the warm sunshine overlooking the lake below. However once I got back to the plateau to go back down the gap it was blowing a very loud and unpleasant Force6/7 and it also was very cold--- a classic of how conditions on a hill can change in minutes. It is a lovely walk and I look forward to doing it again. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/74/comment/714/
