Simple approach from NW
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy  4 Dec 2017
If you want to do this in isolation, the simplest route is from the car park at V882790 A, and then heading SE directly up the heathery slope for 1km. The summit itself is a broad heathery mound. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/777/comment/5536/
