Lofty bump on Reeks ridge.
Short Summary created by simon3  26 Jun 2016
Cnoc an Chuillinn is a minor summit on the ridge of the MacGillycuddy's Reeks between Maolán Buí and Cnoc na Toinne.
Usually this will be visited as part of a longer ridge walk for example ascending via the Big Gun. A round trip is likely to take around 5 to 6 hours. Note that at 958m this summit and its approaches can be hazardous in poor conditions. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/8/comment/4768/
