The summit of Coumfea West Top is the highest point of a spur that goes West from the Comeraghs. At 711 mtrs, it is debatable whether it is the required 15 mtrs higher than the nearest saddle to be listed on this site. The photo shows the summit from a viewing point to the East. As you can see, the spur is pretty flat. Leaving that aside, it still is a very nice area to walk on with some stunning views into the valley below. There is a very small stone cairn on the summit. I measured this at S 2812 0948 C. Easiest access to this mountain is from the car park in the Nire Valley (S 277 128) Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/102/comment/1655/
