Heading for the narrows
Short Summary created by jackill  31 Oct 2010
Park on the Kerry side of the tunnel at about V901 605 A where there is room for a few cars on the roadside.
Walk down the road towards kerry looking for a grassy ramp on your left
Go up the grassy ramp to gain the ridge.
Head west along the ridge to the summit area of Baurearagh Mountain crossing 3 fences on the way.
Drop down after Baurearagh Mountain and a short climb passing some large exposed rock sheets will bring you to the summit area.
If you intend to carry on after this towards the Caha plateau please note that the ridge narrows significantly after this , care is needed as the cliffs to the north are quite steep. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/379/comment/5138/

Picture: Reedy Lough beside Ram's Hill
The great Caha expanse
by Colin Murphy  17 May 2011
Killane was the fourth top in a long day's walking, which began with the Sugarloaf, Sugarloaf West Top, Nareera and then crossed the huge swathe of largely flat but fascinating landscape which is approximately 8 sq km and marked on the OS map by Glenlough Mt and Ram's Hill (which are not MV listed summits). the area is little visited one suspects as it holds no summits for bagging, nevertheless it is worth the excursion. It is a mixture of small rises, boulders, marsh, rocky ridges and countless small loughs. Unfortunately on the day we made the south north traverse the weather turned nasty and denied us much of the view, but not before we encountered such gems as the small reedy lough seen in the accompanying pic, which was immediately to the west of Ram's Hill, about 3km to the SW of Killane Mountain.

This view from Killane south includes three mountains in a group of similar height just left of centre. The leftmost of these is Sugarloaf, which from this angle doesn’t look at all like the sharp ridge it appears as from Glengarriff. The two to the right of it are Toberavanaha and Nareeva, less travelled mountains both of over 500m. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/379/comment/454/

Killane Mountain, a long whaleback of a summit, possesses this fine top which looks like a pair of devil’s horns from some angles. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/379/comment/453/

A very nice walk, incorporating this mountain and two others. 12 of us walked it on Sunday, starting from the carpark in the Nature Reserve. Walked about 40 min on roads until first tunnel and went off road at that point. Beautiful views the whole way round, our descent from Eagles Nest was a little hairy in one spot but otherwise a near perfect day. Well worth looking into. A six hour walk.
