Craggy top with fine views
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy  16 May 2011 Park at the Healy Pass (V786 535 (Point A)) and proceed directly up the steep slope to the south west. This eases into a gentler slope after a short climb. Continue SW, essentially following the Cork-Kerry border. The ground starts to rise more steeply again after a few hundred metres until you attain 450m altitude. Skirt the minor top called Coombane and continue on to the SW for approx 1km, the remainder of the journey being a relatively gentle incline. The going underfoot is generally firm, a mixture of grasses and small rocks. The summit itself is a blend craggy outcrops and grass. The outcrop topped with a small pile of stones is the highest point, at 554m, which on a clear day offers fine views in all directions, though especially of the rocky mass of Hungry Hill 1.5km to the south west. Journey time to summit 1 hour 15 minutes.
Point A: V786 535

by eoin  23 Apr 2004 Part of a route we completed from the Healy Pass on the way to Hungry Hill. The rocky summit provides great views of Hungry Hill to the west and the Cummeengeera Horseshoe to the north and the innner part of Bantry Bay. The summit itself is covered in rocky outcrops and a few points could be determined as the highest point spread over a 100m radius. Nevertheless it is one of the few dry spots on an otherwise very boggy and rock slab strewn ridge.

The photo below is of Hungry Hill taken from the summit of Derryclancy, just visible with the angular rock slabs in the right foreground.
