Short Summary created by simon3, Colin Murphy,  14 Jun 2018
This is normally done in conjunction with Coomcathcun, but may also be completed in isolation. Take the road to the NW of Sneem (following the Sneem River), turning left at point V672 698 A and following the narrow road around to the left until it terminates beside a farmhouse. Ask permission here for access and parking (as of Feb 2016 the elderly farmer has no objection to walkers, but won't allow dogs).

Continue on foot past the farmhouse, swinging to the right almost immediately before old stone building. (See pic inset). Follow this track for about 100m until you come to a gate. Do not continue through gate. Instead, on the left is a muddy sheep pen and behind it, very easy to miss, is a track that curves to the north of Dromtine Lough (in red on pic).

Follow this track, crossing the shallow stream and you will then emerge on open mountainside. Proceed directly west over grassy, steepish terrain. You will need to veer to south or north slightly to pass some steep rock outcrops, after which the incline eases. Continue over several humps for about 1.5km then turn south at point V644 705 B. Continue for 500m over mostly rocky/grassy surface to reach the summit, which is marked by a pile of stones. From car to summit to car took 4 hours, although conditions were very poor.
