Definitely one for the peak bagger.

Parked at A (G701 811) at a forestry gate, parking space for 2 vehicles and walked to B (G6981 8142) as per track details. Turned left and ascended eventually to summit from col. Ground conditions were so bad that rather than retrace our steps we descended through a cleared forestry area to C (G681 808) to pick up a forest track towards Mulnanuff. Linkback:

Short steep trek off forest track

Followed Michael G's excellent instructions to reach this small summit whilst also taking in the other nearby trio of Balbane Hill, Mullanuff and Crocknapeast. The summit is marked by a neat small cairn with good views over Killybegs and Donegal Bay Linkback:

Challenging North Face approach but pleasant 2 hours forth and back
by properteneur 7 Jan 2024
Amazing hill, very underrated I think. I was naive that it will be easy to power hike it from the shortest distance to the Northern lower summit area, but this face is as much of a challenge as pure joy. I think I did about just over a 1000m up the forestry road, before turning into the clearing, and cutting right through the boggy coniferous area, swamping my boots at the very start as I wa surprised with the amount of water there. Animal tracks definitely helped to navigate to the vertical face, and having no backpack, made it safer to start clawing onto the mossy walls and get fairly quickly to the top. I was expecting a bit of plateau between the north and the main summit, but it got me there surprised again. Lots of valleys, water and interesting terrain, with one fresh fencing across. Finally made it, but no cairn on any of the highest points, so chose the one that was the closest to the map position, and left a nice piece of white quartz that I found along the way. I was short on time, so had to diagonally cross through the wilderness there again up North West on the way back, and discovered some doubtful pleasures there as coniferous and dark swamps welcomed me with more water, deeper bogs and fences along the way, but I thoroughly enjoyed this one in general. Love those hills where not many walk, and there's no beatenn track to them. Linkback:
