Last hill in a day of three
by three5four0  28 Sep 2011
Parked at the entrance to the access road, as previously mentioned by dbloke at 369696 A. This is a busy spot, with lots of cars pulling up to look at the views or to rest their clutch, after the drive up from Clochan.

Left the wife to read her book and strode out along the track, met a farmer with many dogs all of the gun variety. He was friendly enough and was wished me well. At the main mast there was several workers about (one passed me on the track), checking the mast no doubt for the imminent arrival of Katia. Went round a gate (to the left of the mast and track) and followed a sheep track across a col, before climbing the last few contours into the kidney shaped summit contour. Visited the summit spot height and several other small rises, before returning to the track and making my way back to the car.

Checking the GPS recorded route, as I walked back along the track, I noticed it had clocked a high point of 402 metres rather than the 395 of the maps spot height. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/849/comment/6542/
