Coming from Knockmeal, the col between the two mountains takes you down to about 500 metres, so it's a 166 m slog at 45 degrees or worse the rest of the way up to Knocknafallia. I would have to agree with the others regarding the uncertainty of where the true summit of Knocknafallia actually is. The summit location recorded by MV is stout-looking cairn, close to (or at) the spot height marked on the OS map. To my eyes, the ruined cairn (see Simon's pic) looked higher, but I wasn't about to take on a 1 km trek there and back along the boggy summit just to find out!
