Short Summary created by jackill,  22 Jan 2011
From the Nire Valley car park(S 277 128 A) , room for 20 cars but note this fills up fast on weekends, walk back down the road towards Ballymacarbery for about 500 meters. You'll come to a gate on your left with a muddy track leading down the slope towards the river.
Cross the river over a makeshift bridge and follow the rising track towards the mountains.
After passing a ruined farmhouse the track leads through a galvanised gate and out across the bog.
The track goes much further than shown on the map and although in places it is indistinct, you can follow it all the way to approximately S28313 11290 B with little difficulty.
Pick your way past Lough Coumstillogemore and Lough Coumstillogebeg heading towards the very steep ascent to Coumfea West Top.
This looks quite tricky from below and certainly as you near the top there is a stretch of 20-30 meters of very exposed almost knife-edge to negotiate,in bad weather I would urge caution .
The summit is unmarked atop a peat hag. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/102/comment/4862/
