Obstacle course
by Colin Murphy  29 Jun 2022
I could not identify the route directly up from the road as described in the short summary, as it seems to have become completely overgrown. Instead I crossed the gate on the left that led into a dark forest track, followed it for 400m to the NW to R92904 70974 starB, where it swung to the NE for 100m then turned back SE for another 400m, leaving me at a gate on the left at R93257 70687 starC. Crossing this left me beside the aforementioned old wall/fence. I ascended NE up the steep slope but had to overcome multiple obstacles, including forestry, lots of gorse, briars and had to cross the barbed wire fence several times to advance. Summit area was pleasantly grassy after the earlier obstacles and marked with a trig pillar. Good, if not spectacular views all around. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/823/comment/23572/
