Ascent Trip Report

We parked our car next to the water storage at 53.595111, -9.895249. The road goes a little bit higher, but driving a "small small" does not make sense. In the morning, I climbed the last Ireland P600, so I had no other option but to find another P500 nearby :). We walked the road and, at some point, simply went straight across a flat muddy field, attempting to guess how to get to the summit. The summit is in the far back, visible only for the last half kilometre or so. Anyway, grassy fields, nothing complicated. The final section is a little more difficult. The summit is marked with a cairn. Another bump in W looks like a similar height. Soon we went down the same way. Nice, short evening hike, just before sunset.

1h05 up, 0h55 down, 2h00 roundtrip
