By the standard route on the heavily eroded 'path' from Murrisk. Very windy, with cloud mostly capping the summit. With BC, DB and RP. Returned by outward route to the col, then onwards to Taobh na Cruaiche 487m.Man of Kernow107/10/2019
I first tried this on 18/04/2018 but the wind was so strong that I couldn't stand up when I reached the col. It even blew my glasses off and I lost them. 4 days later the wind was gentler and it was no problem. Up in 2 hours, down in 1hr 20min.IanHHill22/04/2018

With all those people, followed the tourist route. Fair play to the folks who usually don't climb because they seemed to just be getting on with it and enjoying themselves.nickywood107/05/2011
