A worthwhile outlier

As madfrankie says, it's unlikely anyone would like to climb this just for itself. However, it's certainly worth including Knockantooreen in a circuit which has Carran as the main goal. There are fine views from the top yet the very impressive rock folds that make up the mountain are best appreciated from across the valley.
