One of the few interesting features - there are a number of exposed rockfaces like this at around 400m .
A relatively simple ascent, gentle for the first 1km, a bit steeper for last 0.5km. The summit is a broad, rounded heathery hump, unmarked.
The summit area seen from the east.
There are decent views of the surrounding Breifnes and the oddly named Munter Eolus Lough can also be seen about 1km NW. Up and down 1 hour 20 minutes.
