Approaching from the south, Cnoc na dTarbh is the first rung on the ladder that leads to the eastern ridge of the Reeks.
We parked on the Gap of Dunloe road, south of the rocky knoll Drishana. A straightforward ascent over heathery slopes brought us up onto the ridge between Drishana and Cnoc Na dTarbh. Large boulders crown the summit, and it's not a bad place to take the first breather of the day. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/179/comment/3784/
