South face
by Onzy  14 Mar 2015
Most approaches to Knockowen are from the Healy pass to the west or Cushnaficulla to the east. To the south however, there is a huge amount of slabbed rock on the final approach to the hill. As many of these slabs have slipped irregularly it can be hard to contour south of the mountain. There is however a grassy ledge below a long stretch of slabs at a height of c. 530m which allows good progress, Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/175/comment/17879/
