Easy ascent from east
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy,  15 Apr 2016
Usually done in conjunction with Slievetooey and Slievetooey West Top. See those for parking and route information.
On a clear day, Far West Top is quite evident - a gently rising hump 2.5km to the west of West Top over a gently undulating plateau. Head directly west from West top summit - it is easy going , firm terrain and you will reach the base of the top after about 40 minutes. The slope increases for the final ascent, but you will only have to climb 50m to reach the top, which is marked by a cairn of sorts, and has wonderful views of the coastline further west.
Return the way you came, but skirting to the south of West Top, cross the col and partially ascend Slievetooey again to point G625 900 A, then descend to the SE until you reach the paved lane at G634 888 B. Time for entire 3-top roundtrip is 4.5 - 5 hours.
