The actual climb has about 500 meters of elevation gain and climbs to an altitude of over 600 meters. It's undoubtedly one of Ireland tougher climbs with several long ramps of 15�... read more

The climb marked on the map here is incorrect as it doesn't end at the RTE transmitter on top of Mullaghanish. The actual climb has about 500 meters of elevation gain and climbs to an altitude of over 600 meters. It's undoubtedly one of Ireland tougher climbs with several long ramps of 15% gradient. To get to the top you must access a private road owned and maintained by RTE. The road surface isn't bad but you do have to cross about 3 cattle grids. Descent is very tricky as the bends are sharp and there is a lot of gravel on the road in the steep sections. The morning I went up, visibility was very poor and the descent had to be made at a crawl due to lack of visibility combined with gravel and lots of sheep wandering the road. I didn't encounter any traffic at all once I accessed the private road as the main gate was locked, I had to enter by carrying my bike through a small pedestrian gate. I'd highly recommend the climb though as its a massive achievement just to get to the top.
