New Comment: Easy two Hills once you get to lake !
by Fergalh  Fri 16 Oct
Parked where Melohara did at at B however crossed from forest at narrowest point 631658 A where there was a short tree cutting track and than headed up the two Esknaloughoges. Just ascend up one of the ridges till you reach the lake and two quick bags await. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/756/comment/20929/
