A worthwhile addition.

This summit is easily reached from the main Caherbarnagh ridge and seems easy enough to get to from Curracahill as well. If coming from Caherbarnagh, best is to cross the fence just before the col as to avoid the wet ground, staying as close to the fence as possible though because of the sheer drop to your left. As you start ascending, take the time to turn back and enjoy the views over Lough Gortavehy and the cliffs E of Stoukeen. The summit itself is unremarkable and lies somewhere along the fence.
