From summit of its sister peak to the East IV 81020 85737 E there is a short walk over rocky ground passing the side of a small spot height (unless you can be bothered going over its top) to the West Top summit IV 80778 85815 F. Here again there are wonderful views north across the plains, ENE towards Lough Leane, Purple Mountain, Tomies Mountain and the Reeks Ridge as it wends its way around towards Carrauntoohill. The Northern aspect of Carrauntoohill is clearly seen from this point showing the sheer nature of the drop on the northern and eastern sides of the mountain into the beautiful Hags Glen. There appeared to be a large group of walkers on the top of Carrauntoohill at this time. From the top of Knockbrinnea I set my sights on the col between Beenkeeragh (climbed earlier) and Stuaic (Stumpa) Bharr na h-Abhann the next stage of the walk.
