Follow the Blackrock valley
Short Summary created by jackill,  28 Jul 2010
One way to climb this mountain is by taking the second road to your left on the Dublin side of Kilbeheny where there is a signpost marked "Galtycastle".
Follow this minor road uphill ignoring the turn-off to the right (also signposted Galtycastle) and taking the left hand fork up a cul de sac at the Y junction after it.
After travelling a further 2 kms on this tarred road you will come to a locked gate. Parking here is very tight for even one car on the roadside.
Walk through the gate and over a small concrete bridge to the left. Follow a rough track past a shed and up the Blackrock river valley to its end.Then walk north east uphill to the col between Lyracappul and Knockaterriff Beg and from there to the summit.
The summit is marked by a small cairn.
You have the option to cross the bog for a short distance to gain the summit of Knockaterriff.
Descent from Knockaterriffs summit to the south is possible , however it is steep and slippery so care is needed. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/141/comment/4901/
