Remote and wild, but surprisingly accessible.
Short Summary created by thomas_g,  8 May 2012
Access is easy from the north from W15234 62101 A via a track to the lake and a quick walk to the ridge where navigation is easy thanks to the fence. Access also seems possible from the south via farm tracks (with permission).
The top itself is nothing special, but the views are nice and going is easy once you are on the ridge.
A circuit that takes in Shehy More and Shehy SW top should take less than 3 hours at an easy pace. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/365/comment/5124/

Easy access but boggy from the north
by thomas_g  8 May 2012
Parked at W15234 62101 (room for 1 car). Proceed up the track to Lough Nambrackderg and skirted the lake and onwards to the top of Shehy more. It was very boggy around the lake, be sure and bring gaiters.
The climb up to the ridge is fairly easy and once there you can follow the fence all the way to the top which appears to be marked by 3 sticks stuck in the ground.
As always seems to happen, it was foggy when I reached the top, which of course cleared as soon as I descended, so I can't comment on the views to the north, but those to the south were lovely.
There appear to be a myriad of good tracks to the south of the ridge, I would think with permission from the farmer (who I saw driving his tractor), this would make more a drier ascent. In fact there appears to be a track that goes all the way to W145 597 B (the dip between Shehy More and Shehy SW), which would be a good start to doing both tops.
On your way back down I suggest you shirt west of the lake and make your way to the 336m spot height above Lough Nambrackderg. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/365/comment/6792/

This mountain shows up for a long way as a conical peak (when viewed from the east) and has been described as West Cork's Matterhorn - but the resemblance disappears when close up. We reached it from a long and quiet road between Kealkil and Inchigeelagh that runs between this mountain and Douce mountain. From this road we followed a track which led most of the way to Lough Nadirkmore. From the lake the rest of the way is visible and there were no surprises. We walked to the main ridge and then followed it to the top. The slopes are very steep to north and south of the ridge. It was hazy so our views were limited but I expect they could be very good.
As far as I know this mountain is called Shehy or Shehy Mor, although this is not marked on the OS map Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/365/comment/958/

I assume that the correct name for this hill is 'Shehy More' rather than 'Carrigmount'. On the 1:50,000 Discovery map and on the old 1:126,720 OS map, the small peak on the spur to the East (342m / 1131ft) is named 'Carrigmount'. Went up the track as suggested by 'Mart' here and up past Lake Nambrackderg. Easy going although a little boggy at times. The summit is marked by a wooden stick in the ground, no cairn or trig point. Stunning views of West Cork, from Mullaghanish, the Paps and Caherbarnagh in the North, Knockboy to the West around to Bantry Bay and Cape Clear to the South. The photo shows Shehy More as seen from Lake Nambrackderg to the Northeast. It shows the steep Northern slope. The Southern slope is much the same which gives it that 'pyramid' shape when seen edge on. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/365/comment/1741/

I have been wondering why Sheehy Mor wasnt on the site for a while! I can see 'Carrigmount' from my kitchen window, its an impressive view. I have climbed it once with the Dunmanway walkers. We went a different route to that mentioned elsewhere. From the Bantry line follow the signs for 'Riding'. This leads eventually to a small farm with a stable of horses. With their permission you can head up a boggy track towards the lake and beyond. The other route sounds better to be honest. Lovely views at the top as mentioned of all of South West Cork and up towards Kerry too. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/365/comment/2322/
