Double humped, easy to visit, good views.
Short Summary created by simon3  22 Jan 2018
One way to go up is from Carlingford. Start at around J1839 1095 starA up a path (not the adjacent track). Following the path makes for an easy ascent. It is also possible to start on the SW side for example at J1600010505 starB. The top area has a curious double summit. The higher westerly summit has a cross on it, the lower northerly one overlooks Carlingford and has a low trig pillar. There is a ridge extending south from the top to another slightly lower peak as yet of unknown name.

A great reason to go to Barnavave is the view south which may include the distinctive triangular shapes of the Great and Little Sugarloaf in Wicklow (98km away) Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1504/comment/18839/
