Straight forward route out and back.
Short Summary created by Harry Goodman  24 May 2012
Perhaps the most difficult part of this route is to find the start point! About 1k N of Newport take a minor road to the right F981950 A and follow it along, generally in a northerly direction for some 11k, passing L. Feeagh on the way. At F973055 B leave the road and go left onto an unsurfaced but good quality track. The start of the route is at the Brogan Carroll Bothy some 500m further along to the left of the track with ample parking space. Head W to cross a narrow wooden bridge and follow the way marked route of the Letterkeen Looped Walk and the Bangor Trail. Some 3.2k along, where the forest on the right is replaced by open ground F937073 C, go directly N up the hillside to gain the top about 1k further along F9352708251 D, on a broad flattish summit area and marked by a small pile of stones. Return by way of ascent. It is unlikely that this top will be climbed very often in it's own right. More likely it will be used as a point of reference for a climb of Nephin Beg.
