Steep snowy trek to summit
by Fergalh  21 Apr 2021
Parked on Layby on A497 to the North. Walked west along footpath until we reached permissive path, Followed this south and chose a way uphill. Due to the snow tracks were hard to see. A minor scramble led to summit marked with a small brick trig pillar Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/B1957/comment/22951/
