We approached from Kate Kearney's. climbing a trrack up the side of Strickeen mountain, which petered out leaving us with more than a mile of bog to cross. It was January so it was half-frozen but this area is a big disincentive. The summit is a steep 250m and the view is probably wonderful, but on this occasion all was fog. We decided to leave SE towards Cnoc na dTarbh, which is not far off and reached without much trouble, and from there descend S over Drishana and then down by following a fence down to the head of the gap.
