The name Glanaprehane probably refers to the steep glen N of Caherbarnagh rather than this peak.   Caherbarnagh NW Top is the 162nd highest summit in Ireland. Caherbarnagh NW Top is the second most northerly summit in the Paps/Derrynasaggart area.

Wish the view was as good as the photo by Jackhill the day I took my camera. Going up can often be easier than coming down and today we came down from Glanaprehane on the closer fallaway ridge by moving out to the end of it turning right near the end and then left again. Much easier to go up. The boggy soft ground is a help but a few more rocks would make a man feel safer on the way down. To go up, in my opinion its one of the best challenges to reach the higher Caherbarnagh apart from taking it straight on from the coom (very hard) or firstly ascending Stoukeen considering any ascent from the Clydagh valley is pretty damp. This said I would alternatley recommend an ascent from W177 850 as the driest from the Clydagh valley which is beautiful and long valley which is nice and quiet as there is only one way in and out for normal traffic.
