Start from the carpark at N 306 023 D which is near the fine stone Monicknew Bridge. Walk up a forest track to the north east of this, which takes you along the south east side of the Delour River. On the day that I did this, it was a frothing brown torrent. Follow the mountain track until you reach a gap in the forest (at around N 322 030 E) with open moorland to your left. The summit was flat, like the other 500m summits in the Slieve Blooms so I include a picture of the thick peat with miniature waterfall that was evident at the point where you start onto the moorland to reach the summit.
