The NW ridge is only a short detour off the route around the Glenlar - Birreencorragh - Knockaffertagh horse shoe. It took me 10 mins to reach the top but it was definitely worth it to get another perspective on Birreencorragh, with its impressively long and scree covered N ridge sweeping down into the dividing river valley. The NW ridge continues down towards Letterkeen Wood and I suppose could be used as a different access point for the climb - it did look impressive from the valley to the W the next day when I was climbing Buckoogh. The view from here is also captivating - from the big hills of Connemara across a sun dappled Clew Bay to the rugged peaks of the rest of the Nephin Begs and N across the lowlands to the N Mayo coast.
