MountainViews.ie Picture about mountain Spinans Hill SE Top (<i>Cnoc na Spíonán (mullach thoir theas)</i>) in area Wicklow, Ireland
Picture: Rocky/grassy highpoint, with Keadeen in background.
 
Approach via Spinan's.
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy  27 Jun 2024
Usually done in conjunction with the main top. There is now no access to this hill from the south (see comment on Spinan's Hill.) Follow route from the north to Spinan's, then turn SE and follow the edge of the forest to point S92393 91110 starA, cross a fence and enter woodland - the mature trees make it quite walkable. When you emerge around 92776 91011 starB, you are about 350m west of the summit, although 100m of the final ascent is up through high ferns on uneven ground, making going potentially hazardous. Eventually you cross a wall on to a broad grassy area with a rocky/grassy outcrop at its centre, which marks the highpoint. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/841/comment/5600/
