Relatively easy ascent from the east.
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy,  27 Nov 2014
Park at Q717 056 A, the highest point of the Aughils to Camp road, where there is room for 1/2 cars. Head directly west, the ground cover being knee-high heather for about 1km. The slope gradually increases and becomes quite steep at around 400m ascent. The heather disappears and the terrain is mostly grass and rock, and firm underfoot, (despite recent heavy rain) and after 1.5km you will reach the summit of Knockbrack at 459m, a longish summit area with the highest point, which is at the eastern end, being quite indistinct. Continue west passing some rocky outcrops at the western end of Knockbrack, and descend about 35m to a col before turning south west and making a gradual ascent of Moanlaur over 1km. The summit is marked by a cairn. 1.25 hours from car to summit. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/332/comment/5092/
