A walk to savour on a clear day
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy, jackill,  2 Mar 2015
Park in the large car park at the Connor pass.
Cross the main road and head due east uphill following a distinct track for 200 meters, leave this track as it swings sharply south and continue uphill and east, skirting cliffs to your left side.
You will come to a small semicircle of stones at about 620 mtrs elevation , pick up a low stone wall and follow it to the unmarked summit of Slieveanea about 400 meters to the east.
From Slieveanea head south from the summit crossing rough bog for a little while before an easy ascent across a stoney surface to an Cnapan Mor , then descend to the Windy Gap and follow with a grassy sharp ascent to the summit.
An alternative is to park at the car park beside Lough Anscaul and ascend directly up the steep eastern slope. This becomes tricky around 400m elevation when you must ascend through a narrow gully which involves some climbing - and a warning - this can be a little dangerous in wet conditions. After that continue directly west for about 500m to reach Knockmulanane and then a further 2km west takes you to the summit, marked by a cairn. The terrain is a mixture of grass and heather and quite uneven. 2.5 hours car to summit. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/207/comment/4967/

From the summit cairn Of Cnoc na Bánóige looking along the ridge to Knockmulane and Dromavally Mountain(slightly to the left).In the background you can make out the Slieve Mish mountains rising up over Tralee.The ridge has no evidence of walker damage even though the views of the Brandons and across Dingle Bay are just stunning.

See Knockmulanane for the start of this walk

Arrived here from Knockmulanane, on which has been our driest day of our holiday in Dingle. Continued over pt609 (lots of quartz in the rocks) and descended down into Windy Gap. Where we switched direction, walking NE past a right angle turn in the stream at 540056 A, turning north past spot height pt364, crossing a fence and then a track (not marked on the map or even the new 1:25,000 Brandon map) to reach the summit of Slievenagower.

See Slievenagower for continuation. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/207/comment/4166/
