In comparison the summit is a large flat and boundlessly indulgent plateau capable of potentially fitting many football pitches. The walk will start at Glenacally Bridge along a rough track. The first climb starts early into the hike and slowly ascends the shoulder south-westwards. The first spot height is at 601m and the climbing is very minimal from here.

The walks joins onto the Mayo/Galway border at reaches the Devils Mother at 645m. The views here are spectacular on a fine day with evidence of glaciated valleys, Killary Fjord and Tawnaleen. The walk continues downhill along the border softly and steadily towards the village of Leenane.
