Normally, 731 meters would be considered quite statuesque for an Irish hill, but not when you're a member of the MacGillycuddy family. The photo shows the route west from Cnoc An Bhraca up to the main eastern ridge. A distinct track descends to a col (Eisc An Bhraca) and continues up to Cruach Mor's grottoed summit.
