Heathery boulder topped peak at the SE corner of the Reeks.
Short Summary created by simon3,  4 May 2015
This a summit whose highest point is one of a number of large boulders. In their immediate vicinity there are fine views of Purple Mountain, much of the Reeks and from east of here are views into the Gap of Dunloe.
It can be reached from the south at the head of the Gap of Dunloe around V870833 A. Be careful to pick a good route for ascent and particularly descent amongst the cliffs here. An intermediate spur on this route is marked Drishana on the OS 1:50000.
It can also be easily reached from Cnoc an Bhráca which in turn can be reached from the track ascending from V877883 B south of Kate Kearney's Cottage, Gap of Dunloe.
Please note. Descending from this summit is not possible in a number of places to the east. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/179/comment/4939/

Approaching from the south, Cnoc na dTarbh is the first rung on the ladder that leads to the eastern ridge of the Reeks.
We parked on the Gap of Dunloe road, south of the rocky knoll Drishana. A straightforward ascent over heathery slopes brought us up onto the ridge between Drishana and Cnoc Na dTarbh. Large boulders crown the summit, and it's not a bad place to take the first breather of the day. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/179/comment/3784/

This summit appears as an extra to Cnoc an Bhraca so the same access applies
We approached from Kate Kearney's. climbing a trrack up the side of Strickeen mountain, which petered out leaving us with more than a mile of bog to cross. It was January so it was half-frozen but this area is a big disincentive. The summit is rounded with a scattering of large boulders. Descent to the E is very dange . Go S over the lower summit of Drishana and then down by following a fence down to the head of the gap. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/179/comment/2163/

Cnoc na dTarbh from Gap Cottage
by Conor74  24 May 2010
Car park at the Head of the Gap full, so went down into the Gap about half a mile and parked on the left hand side near the Gap Cottage. Pushed through the rhodos and trees behind the cottage, and came to the stream that winds down the south east side of Cnoc na dTarbh. Follwed this stream for an hour or so, almost up to the ridge between Drishana and the summit. All fairly easy, though baking sun didn't help. At the ridge turned north east and it was a quick 10 min jaunt to the summit. Good route, enables a quick ascent, no fences or obstacles after first minute or two behind the cottage itself. Went on around the Big Gun and along Reeks from there. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/179/comment/5823/

Straightforward walk from Cnoc an Bhraca to the boulder covered summit for my last top of the day. I presume the mountain dereives its name from the unusual rock formation at the top which vaguely resembles the horns of a bull. Descended to the west (Black Valley side) of Drishana on the advice of a very helpful walker I had met on Tomies earlier in the day and indeed the terrain proved easy taking this route. This left a short walk back to the Head of the Gap. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/179/comment/4413/

Nice easy ascent from the road south of the Gap, as mentioned by others. Three hours
up and down, lunch and photos included. Lots of snow on the upper slopes. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/179/comment/18420/
