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 48th highest in Ireland. Fauscoum is the highest point in county Waterford.

I've been climbing the comeragh mountains for over 10 years now and i must point out that fauscoum isn't infact the highest point in the comeraghs this was a misprint on the OS map,fauscoum is infact the valley below the highest point,the highest point doesn't actually have a name its just known as point 792, and i've confirmed this with many other die hard mountaineers who climb the comeraghs regulary and it was my brother Eoin who adv me on this and made me 100% of this,don't tell him but we think he is part mountain goat Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/48/comment/4234/
