Descent can be tricky
Short Summary created by Fergalh  30 Oct 2020
It is easy to get up unto the plateau that has Maen Du on it. However great care must be taken on the descent as it is steep and surrounded by cliffs so the descent can be treacherous. So not only plan your way up but also your way down and if it takes longer to be safer so be it. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/B2146/comment/8135/
