Simple approach from the west
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy,  15 Nov 2013
This approach from the north is equally good if you intend to bag Benwiskin. Parked at G 7090 4710 A (Point B). The tarred road peters out but continues as rough stones (but drivelable with care) for another hundred metres or so, where you will find a space to park a couple of cars. Head SE up a gently rising slope towards a gully, which eventually becomes steeper nearer the top, emerging at G7200 4610 B (Point C). From here, proceed approx. 800m NEE across gently rising, mostly grassy terrain. You will have to surmount a nasty barbed-wire fence just before the summit, which is pretty featureless, the high point marked only by a small pile of stones. There are great views to the north as the ridge extends out to Benwiskin, plunging, spectacular cliffs lining the valley. In fact the summit of Annaccona is just metres from a very dangerous cliff to the north, although it is not particularly obvious from the top – so be very wary in misty conditions. Time from car to summit, 1 hour 15 minutes. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/282/comment/5042/
