There is a hillfort on summit named Rathcoran and a second one to NW. The entry in PNCW for Rathcoran refers to an article on The Excavation of a Burial Cairn on Baltinglass Hill in PRIA xlvi (1941), p. 221. This makes it clear that Baltinglass Hill is the English name of this height. Has been called Coolanarrig.   Baltinglass Hill is the 990th highest summit in Ireland.

wicklore on Baltinglass Hill, 2008
by wicklore  14 Sep 2008
As I drove around Baltinglass Hill looking for a likely approach point, I asked a farmer unloading sheep about access. He offered that I could park in his field and head up through his farmland. I said that I hoped to find a more public route, and he said that there was a lane beside the graveyard in Baltinglass that gave access onto the hill. He said it was ok to head up the hill that way. I found an overgrown track to the right of the graveyard at approximately S871 887. I followed this and in a few minutes entered the fields below Baltinglass Hill. I headed up towards a large cross and antennae at approx 878 892 B. I reached a field of painful gorse which stopped a direct uphill route, and much retracing of steps was needed to find a way through.
Reaching the cross I paused to look back down into Baltinglass and across to Tinoran Hill. Beyond the cross were more fields inhabited by cows, sheep and horses. I had to walk through them and I wondered if this was really the more public route the farmer had in mind.
The trig point of Baltinglass Hill was about another 700 metres beyond the cross. I enjoyed reaching it as I discovered the fascinating prehistoric hillfort there. The stone wall of the hillfort is a complete circle up to about 5 foot high in places. The wall itself is about 12 feet wide and I roughly measured the inside diameter at 60-70 feet. It is big! Within the circle are the remains of a few burial chambers. The weather was deteriorating rapidly and the views out to the east were disappearing. I just had time to say goodbye to Keadeen before she was engulfed in the rain clouds that would shortly reach me. To the south the Blackstairs were also cloud covered. In good weather I imagine this would be a fantastic viewpoint across the Wicklow hills.
There are no walker tracks and with the arrival of rain and cloud I used my compass to head back to the cross. I dropped down northwest to the road and walked back to my car.
I have no doubt that there are other routes available that don’t cross so much farmland. The forestry to the northwest of the summit might offer an approach. I would recommend that permission is sought every time before heading up from the graveyard side. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/864/comment/3308/
