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: mountainviews.ie/summit/B1957/comment/22951/

The final ascent
by Fergalh 21 Apr 2021
This is a small but rocky and steep hill. Route selection is important but fortunately there are two main tracks up the hill. One from the south west and a longer one from the east Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/B1957/comment/22952/
