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 starA, 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/
