Park on the Kerry side of the tunnel at about V901 605 A where there is room for a few cars on the roadside.
Walk down the road towards kerry looking for a grassy ramp on your left
Go up the grassy ramp to gain the ridge.
Head west along the ridge to the summit area crossing 3 fences on the way. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/486/comment/5245/

Probably best to climb this long whaleback ridge from the gate on the Kerry side of the biggest tunnel at the top of the Caha pass at about V9012 6057 B, there's parking for a couple of cars here. Just head through the gate, up to the top of the ridge and follow the stout fence up a short, steep slope and along the 1.5km ridge to the summit area. There's an abundance of fences around here but most are easily enough crossed, if you find the right point. Good views from the summit down over Glengariff and across to the Reeks and Iveragh. Logically, you would continue on to nearby Killane Mountain from here, but due to a late start and deciding to climb Turner's Rock first and follow the undulating ridge across the top of the Tunnel, Killane will have to wait for another day.
