From the Priest's Leap Pass. Drove the mountain road up to the col from Coomhola Bridge to the south - not too bad if you don't meet another vehicle. Road up from the north more challenging. Parked at the col. Followed the standard route east by the fence, then north onto Pt. 561m. Then east past Lough Reagh and north-east up to the summit. Returned the same way. Quite boggy.

Walked up from The Priests Leap. No visability due to thick mist and rain. Top is marked by a Trig. Pillar at 706m. Care with navigation needed in misty conditions.Harry Goodman24/08/2008
