Picture: SE Ridge central and trig pillar skyline right.
There is parking for two or three cars at around A (SH43770 47451). Start from here over rough moorland towards the summit.
The summit area is a ridge extending from the top to the SE. The top can be reached by circling around a rocky spur on the SE ridge.

Started a bit North of Simons Route parked at gate beside the T junction and crossed fence and headed straight up between the SE Spur and the summit ridge. Very Rocky summit area with a small cairn beside the trig pillar Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/B1953/comment/22357/
