Quick steep walk up with views of the NW Shannons.
Short Summary created by simon3,  30 Jul 2012
One way up is from the newly tarred (2012) road where there space for a few cars to park near R93092 70540 A without blocking gates. Ascend straight up through the forest beside a fence and later a broken wall. For an easier start find a looping track, shown on the OS 1:50000, that goes NW at first.

From the summit there are impressive views of the Benduff-Kilduff-Devilsbit ridge and some smaller unlisted summits in front of them. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/823/comment/5582/
