f/a, s/a for malign bui, croc na peiste, the big gun, & cruach mhor, 2 in party, hot & sunny with a breeze, 8hrs approx, 14 km approx. another sunny day, from cronins yard, track then path (priests path?) up onto the shoulder & croc na toinne. along the ridge taking in the tops, good ridge walk, from croc na peiste there is some good scrambling, ridge narrows with some scrambling, choice of a short wet descent to north and reascent back to the ridge or a short step in the ridge. from the big gun, turn the over hang by a steep descent on a path, first large block can be turned by a short descent of a damp tight corner on the east side, clambering around its base to regain the ridge. either take to the crest with several steep down climbs or take a faint path on the west side. this ridge is best tackled coming from cruach mhor rather than from the big gun, this gives the option of tackling the short vertical sections or avoiding them, rather than suddenly arriving at the top of them. desrum doodle 08/04/2015

From Big Gun. All difficulties could be avoided way down on the Hags Glen side; the ridge is heavily gendarme. I kept as close to the crest as possible, visiting it a few times, keeping to Grade 1 scrambling at the highest. This peak completed my Kerry 'Munros' and I returned to Cronin's Yard from pt. 781 on the ENE ridge- narrow but no longer rocky. A fence was a guide- no path, a bit of deliberate trespassing needed to avoid climbing fences or taking a more circuitous route. It was 7 pm so no messing, beer and food at Kate Kearney's was becoming a priority!pwheeler24/05/2011
