Little to add except that the views from these summits are some of the finest in the country with the whole of the Iveragh peninsula visible. The view in the photo is looking east to the Magillicuddy Reeks with the Dunkerrons to the right of these. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/562/comment/17803/

On the map Knocknagapple looks like a very quick and easy excursion from the Ballaghisheen Pass (671792 A) and so it (largely) proves, but there's a fair amount of outcropping rock to be tackled/outflanked, and a smidge of bog. A fence follows a line based upon (but not slavishly following) the ridge up to the top. If continuing to the NW Top it's worth bearing in mind that said fence pursues a rather 'athletic' line down to the connecting gap, and it's wise to descend a little way to the left or right. In the picture, taken from the facing slope of Knocknacusha across the pass, an Opel Corsa provides some scale (if you can see it). Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/562/comment/3772/

Starting at Ballaghisheen Pass on a damp, misty day, the initial part of the ascent provided the opportunity to do a little rock-climbing over the many house-sized outcroppings that marked the apparent route upwards. Unfortunately the mist denied me the opportunity to enjoy what are undoubtedly wonderful views, but the rocky climb and narrow ridge at the top made it quite an interesting mountain to climb.
