I left the car in KIlfinane and ascended the new Keale top and included the old Keale top for the sake of it. The trees are quite mature on the old Keale top so it really isn't that difficult to access. Made an attempt on Fear Breagach from the north in the dark. The very obvious path becomes rapidly obstructed by a large bunch of fallen trees. In the darkness with only my headlight and wet tree trunks i abandoned my attempt and will approach from the south via Hivisibility's description.
