Narrow lanes to starting Point
Short Summary created by Fergalh  25 Oct 2020
Care must be taken on these windy narrow roads as they are steep and windy and there is only one car parking space at beginning of the track Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/B2297/comment/8302/

Not a horror climb really
by Fergalh  25 Oct 2020
Cross the river and follow one of the classic winding narrow welsh lanes (there are many of them !) until you get to start of track. Follow track all way to summit named after late 19th century local horror writer and trig pillar awaits Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/B2297/comment/21062/
