Ridge bump with extreme cliff.
Short Summary created by simon3, bryanmccabe  10 Aug 2018
Maumtrasna NE top, approximately 2km NE of Maumtrasna, is worth a visit in its own right. The most direct access is via the steep ridge up to nearby spot height 542. One possible starting point is near the bridge at M031643 A, follow the road in the direction of Loch na Deirce Bige (Lough Dirkbeg). The road deteriorates into a series of rocky access tracks to former turf banks. Find one that brings you as close to the base of the ridge as possible, before branching off and ascending steeply. Or, instead of ascending steeply, head to the north side of the ridge on a mostly grassy slope. Continue on this until the cliffs on the north side of the ridge peter out and then head for the summit,

Maumtrasna NE top can be included as part of a long circuit taking in Barnahowna, with fabulous views of Lough Glenawough en route. The wooded hillside on the north side of Abhainn Bhrain and views of Lough Mask to the east are also noteworthy. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1418/comment/18046/

Fun descent at the end of a fine circuit.
by markmjcampion  28 Oct 2020
I climbed Maumtrasna NE Top as part of a circuit that included Tullymorehill and Barnahowna...about 5.5 hours all in with 18km of walking and 600 metres of ascent. I parked at the same place as Ilenia mentioned in the barnahowna comments and, after heading up Tullymorehill, followed her route to the summit of Barnahowna. It's a slog as she said but definitely worth it for the far reaching views of the Maumtrasna corries, the Nephins and over to the Sheffrey's. I continued over to Maumtrasna NE top via the col to the south east of Glenawough corrie.. very pleasant route with great views into the huge corrie. I followed the ridge towards Maumtrasna for about a kilometre and then dropped down to the brook just above the end of the forest ine. It was easy to cross and afforded an easy ascent of the NE top which is a mere bump on a very fine steep-backed northeastern spur of the main massif. From here, I descended the very steep but grassy spur to gain the bog below in no time! It was a fun descents but not advisable without good boots and a solid pair of knees! Thereafter I aimed for the bog track which progressed soon to a tarmacked road and at approximately M038 636 B I jumped a fence and climbed up through a couple of fields to reach my car as darkness descended.

Small top, big drop.
by simon3  10 Aug 2018
The summit is truly a bump on the spur to the north of Lough Dirkbeg. From Buckaun you can get an idea of the approx 250m cliff beside the summit down towards the lough. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1418/comment/20008/
