Despite being the highest of the Comeraghs, this is a rather unremarkable summit above the spectacular valley of Coumshingaun. The circuit of Coumshingaun comprises the ascent and descent of two dramatic ridges. The cliffs at the back of the valley offer some of the finest rock-climbs in Ireland. The name Fáschom properly refers to the next coom immediately south of Coumshingaun. The name may refer either to its wild nature or to the fact that, unlike many of the cooms which cut into the Comeragh plateau, it has no lake. Knockaunapeebra / Cnocán an Phíopaire is the name of a a lower peak to the SW.   Fauscoum is the highest mountain in the Comeragh Mountains area and the 49th highest in Ireland. Fauscoum is the highest point in county Waterford.

The summit cairn of Fauscoum taken as part of the circuit of the nire valley in Joss Lynams "Best Irish Walks" . Dungarvan bay is in the background to the left,Crohaun hill just to the right and the side of Coumaraglin disappearing out of view on the extreme right .The summit of Fauscoum is flat and boggy with only the small cairn to mark it, but follow a bearing of 64 degrees for about 400 m and you'll see possibly one of the most dramatic views in the Comeraghs - Lough Coumshingaun from above Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/48/comment/1073/
