Kells Mountain forms part of the Knocknadober ridge. It can be approached via a steep descent from Knocknadober Mountain followed by an ascent of c. 130 M to the top and gives a great perspective on the steep cliffs of Knocknadober plunging to the Glendalough Lakes below. It could be climbed as a single summit ascending and descending via the Glendalough lakes valley or as part of a longer "Knocknadober " circuit.
