Short Summary created by jackill,  9 Jul 2011
Park beside the gate and information board around M3304 0329 A. From here, head through the gate and along the track across the limestone pavement. You soon pass through another gate in a wall, from where you can head off the track up the hill to the left.
Veer off to the obvious shoulder, left of the cliffs. Follow this up over steep, broken limestone ground, the trickiest part is early on, where you have to cross a large wall, amongst thick hazel scrub, on top of a 3m rock step.
From here, veer right above the cliffs, until you reach the large, flat summit plateau, which is surprisingly grassy and agricultural. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/927/comment/5686/
