I was thinking of heading up around there on Thursday actually, but for a sniff around the lower slopes and to go crazy with my camera , haven't the experience or the knowledge to attempt the higher up stuff..
There will be fresh snow up there in the morning aright - its snowing here now!

Park at one of the forest car parks along Sraghmore but be careful because this road is icy. From here, it is about a 50min walk to the foot of Djouce. Enjoy.
