Grassy Summit
by Fergalh  30 Oct 2020
Nice climb with good views but bear in mind the summit is on private land. I asked permission from the local farmer approached from Cwmdu Road along long track before venturing over the fence and up the hill to the field Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/B7675/comment/21156/
