Potentially there are a lot of access points for this summit. For example you can start from the Beara Way, marked on the OS 1:50k - it's around a 3k walk from the Beara Way via the NE spur from the summit marked 464 on the map. You could probably come at the summit from the Baurearagh valley or from near Knockduff to the NE.

Another place to start is at the forest entrance at V846626 in the Clonee Valley. This glacial valley is well worth a visit in its own right having dramatic sides and big lakes. Leave the road and head into the valley to the W of Knocknagorraveela. If you go through 854629 your track should be on uncultivated ground west of any fields. The river can be crossed somewhere to the NW of the summit for example at 866632.

The summit has great views down the Clonee Valley. The photo shows the summit from a point between Cummeenanimma (aka Eskana) and Coomnadiha. There is a spectacular waterfall W of the summit. The lake bottom right is Cummeenadillure Lough. The ridge on the skyline to the left heads NW towards Kenmare River over various bumps. Richard Mersey [The Hills of Cork and Kerry] describes this as "Boring Ridge". Maybe so, but this summit has many other interesting features.
