A load of b....xs!

Used eflanaga's route to top, which took approx 45 minutes up and down. Summit has recently been subject to gorse burning and resembles the location of a napalm attack. No particularly interesting features - one purely for the baggers methinks. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/816/comment/6436/
