Competing Summits
by Onzy  21 Jul 2015
Caoinkeen South East Top is easily reached from Caoinkeen itself. From the northeast, the summit looks almost like a ridge, with a number of prominences competing for the highpoint. The summit area itself however, is more plateau-like with three definite contenders for the honour, with W02812 63787 A registering highest for me.

To the northeast of the summit, at a height of 263m, lies the pretty Lough Nambrackderg. A short walk taking in the summit and a circuit of the lake is possible from parking at W03922 64895 B. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1437/comment/18207/

Scrambled legs
by thomas_g  12 Dec 2015
Onzy's comment had reminded me that I'd been meaning to do the circuit of Lough Nambrackderg for some time.
One route up is the spur between Lough Nambrackderg and Lough Beg which is a good scramble, with a few unprotected moves on slippery rock.
Other options from this side are the gully on the south side of Lough Nambrackderg which looked easy enough as gully climbs go and possibly the easiest option, the spur to the south of Lough Beg. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1437/comment/18405/

Serious cliffs above Lough Nambrackderg

The Caoinkeens can be seen well from the vicinity of Conigar. Caoinkeen SE is to the left, the main summit to the right. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1437/comment/19941/
