New Comment: Easier route in 2022
by JohnRea  2 May 2022
Update based on conditions experienced in 2022. You can drive up the lane and there is space for one or two cars at R91728 61731 starB. There is also plenty of parking space at R91477 61946 starC if you are willing to drive a very narrow boreen with some briar contact. The roadway between R91728 61731 starB and R91477 61946 starC was in good condition albeit with grass in the middle.

On the accent I walked diagonally from R91728 61731 starB to R91746 62495 starD and even with the aid of poles I found the ground conditions very heavy going with high grass, heather, lots of grass mounds, a few gullies and some deep water pools. After arriving at the top with one boot full of bog water I opted to descend through the mature forest keeping in one or two rows of trees from the eastern side of the trees. This turned out to be a very pleasant decent and there is evidence of others taking this route through the mature trees. A much safer route even for experienced ankles while the trees are mature.
