Impressive outlier of main summit
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy,  4 Jun 2013
Park at Q743 107 A (Point A), where the narrow road turns to the left, beside a nearby a house, and where there is just room for a couple of cars. Head up the track at the side of the house and you will reach a stile which leads onto the open mountain. Follow a faint path to the right of the gorge of the Derrymore River. You will need to cross the river at some point, probably around Q744 093 B. There are a number of impressive waterfalls to your left as you proceed in a SSE direction for roughly 1km up the steeply rising slope, but which is quite climbable. The well-defined summit is rocky with a number of large, flat boulders scattered about. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/93/comment/4853/

Often it's the outlying tops of any given mountain area that have the most interesting views. (Think Knockastakeen in the Galtees or Bla Bheinn in the Cuillins on Skye). This top is 750m NW of the main summit, giving a commanding position overlooking the Derrymore Glen and views of the Gearhane to Caherconree ridge.

And then there are these odd perching stones on the summit. The coastline behind is around Fenit and the island above and slightly to the left of the left stone rejoices in the name "Fenit Within". Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/93/comment/2057/

This picture of BNW was taken while ascending Gearhane from the North. From this angle BNW looks remarkably conical -- It's like a huge pleated skirt. (You need some imagination to see this. ok lots) Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/93/comment/2056/

Not a Bad Looker
by omurchu  12 Feb 2015
Instead of slogging up Gerhane, an nice alternative route to Caherconree, Bautregaum and its adjacent tops is to head into Derrymore Glen (following the Derrymore river) and scramble up the back wall of the coum behind the lakes. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/93/comment/17835/
