As Simon has suggested, this works well as a short trip from Ballaghisheen (671792), a short boggy and bumpy section giving way to an easy-ish climb. But I think his picture doesn't dissuade any aspirant ascentionists thinking of doing Coomura via this top nearly effectively enough, so that's my excuse for posting a pic looking in much the same direction: it looks VERY impressive from here.
