Looking for a short way to climb Shehy More but put off by the landowner's sign at the beginning of the track to the W, I drove on and noticed the forest had been felled and the forest road could provide an easy access. Plenty of space to park at the starting point. Not much difficulty encountered indeed as there were only two short felled sections to cross (plus the ground was pretty dry). Be aware that the area has been replanted though, so not sure what it will be like in a few years. The last bit of ascent to the main top was made along a fence on very steep ground, but a gentler line of ascent could surely be found. The detour to the SW Top is worth for the views, plus I found the going rather pleasant on the way back.
