Short Summary created by jackill,  9 Mar 2011
Park at V78640 53567 A, room for 3 cars. If the shop is closed parking is also possible at V78656 5346 B. There is a rough track leading east from the highest point of the pass.Pick your way upwards around easy, rock shelfs onto a level rocky ridge. As you leave this ridge look for a grassy slope on the side of Knockowen to ascend to the summit cairn on a low rock shelf.
Carry on from Knockowen to Cushnaficulla.
Drop down then over rocky ground to a broad grassy col before the final easy walk to the rocky summit marked by a small cairn. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1056/comment/6079/
