This was a relatively tough climb considering it’s not a particularly high Carn.
Summit seen from north.
There is parking at the side of the road for a couple of cars. Clamber up a grassy bank across the road and head directly SE up the grassy slope, which is mostly solid underfoot. There are tremendous views to the north of the Dunkerron range.

An old, mostly rusty fence to the right provides more guidance in poor visibility – it leads almost to the summit. The gradient steepens considerably around the 250m mark, and there are a couple of quite steep sections requiring some extra effort.
Summit trig
Arriving at the broad summit area, you will need to traverse about 700m further to reach the summit, which is marked by an enormous trig pillar. Wonderful views all round, including the entire sweep of Kenmare Bay to the south.
