Not great to look at, but great to look from.

If you're approaching from Croveenananta the climb from the col is less than 50m up a mostly grassy and firm slope. If you're coming up the Slí na Finne from the road, you'll have about 180m climbing, although that's fairly easy going also. It won't tax your legs too much. The highpoint is a grassy area topped by a small pile of stones, and the views are tremendous. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/812/comment/24005/
