The cross stands on a low mound of rocks, earth and grass. Seen from the northwest.


This simple, undecorated and thin stone cross is east from the Glendalough Upper Lake. It stands on a low mound made of rocks, earth and grass.
It measures 68 centimetres of height, 35 centimetres of width at the base and 53 centimetres at its arms, but it's only 4 centimetres thick!
It's aligned north-south and it leans to the south by 7°.
This cross and the others close by were probably used as stations on the pilgrims' route.
Another plain cross is about 25 metres north from this one.
