Twin peaks
Short Summary created by jackill  31 Oct 2010 Park at V78640 53567 (Point A), room for 3 cars. If the shop is closed parking is also possible at V78656 5346 (Point B). There is a rough track leading east from the highest point of the pass.Pick your way upwards around easy, rock shelfs onto a level rocky ridge. As you leave this ridge look for a grassy slope on the side of Knockowen to ascend to the summit cairn on a low rock shelf.
Carry on from Knockowen to Cushnaficulla.
There are two possible summits on top of rocky shelves.The discovery series OSI maps them as 594 and 596 meters, however the old 6 inch maps lists both at 1942 feet(approx. 592 mtrs).
GPS readings on both suggest equal heights of 597 meters.
Better climb both then
Point A: V78640 53567 Point B: V8656 5346

Summit grows by 2 metres and heads east!
by three5four0  10 Aug 2010 On my way to investigate the claims for Knockeirys exclusion in the Arderins list, I naturally took in Knockowen and Cushnaficulla on the way there. Whilst pondering in my mind, that it probably was not a good idea to stay in a certain well known pub to the small hours of the morning, and then go hillwalking the next day, let alone to do it 7 nights in a row. I noticed that whilst my map, and the MV listed the spot height as 594m and on the West top, my Satamap software gave a second spot height of 596m on the East top of Cushnaficulla. So, not only a gain of 2 metres, but a move to the east for the summit! As the mapping is supplied to Satamap by OSI, does the new series maps have this extra spot height on them? And more to the point has anyone just visited the east top and not the west?, no sniggering at the back there!

by simon3  5 Aug 2003 Richard Mersey [The Hills of Cork and Kerry] “.. it is worth going to the Northern peak [of Cushnaficulla] and peering into the depths of Glenrastel, now over 1,500 feet vertically below you. Cushnaficulla, indeed, has a magnificent north face that is the steepest in Beara.” The photo shows this view – I am sure you will agree that it is impressive.

by simon3  5 Aug 2003 This is a picture of Cushnaficulla from its West. The little lake visible in the picture is Lough Namuinna, supposedly a great place to swim if you don’t mind cold water.
