Short Summary created by Colin Murphy, march-fixer  25 May 2015
This top is the larger of the two Knockbrinnea peaks. There are excellent views N to Castlemaine, NE to Killarney and SE into the Hag's Glen. It is best approached from the car-park at Lisleibane V82714 87304 A via Knockbrinnea (E).

An alternative starting point is Cronin's Carpark at V83600 87300 B B. Proceed along the track into the Hag's Glen until the bridge crosses the river at V826 864 C C. From here proceed directly up the slope to the west. Terrain is mostly grass at first and firm underfoot and initially slope is reasonably gentle, but becomes very steep after about 400M altitude and remains so pretty much to the summit, which is a large rocky area topped by a cairn. 1 hour 20 minuted from car to summit

The two tops are about 400m apart with a height difference of only 7m, with Knockbrinnea (W) being the higher. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/16/comment/4776/
