Reward precisely proportional to effort...
Short Summary created by Peter Walker  14 Jun 2012
Derrylahard East is a reasonably charisma-free lump in the hinterland to the east of Dunmanus Bay. Largely shagged with trees it affords a very easy climb with little but its easiness to commend it.

Start from 988419 A and follow the Sheep's Head Way as it gently winds uphill. After c. 800m the path comes alongside the forest adorning the hill's south side and continues for another few hundred metres over a few ups and downs before passing just north of the summit knoll, crowned by a few untidy rocks. There are very average views to the north, and no views to the south owing to the encroaching trees.

A short traverse can be made, as the continuation of the Sheep's Head Way descends to the same road from which you commenced: turn right to regain the start. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/955/comment/5714/
