The knobbly power of the north spur of Knocklaur can be seen from the road at around L921686 B.
There are tracks up its E side such (See Track 1267) however climbing the northern ridge would probably be more mountaineering rather than hillwalking. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/414/comment/14711/
