Picture: View from Knockmulanane
 
Updated Summary:
Ridge summit with some cliffs and great views.
Short Summary created by simon3, Colin Murphy, jackill  Sun 23 Jan
From the west: Start from the car park at the Connor pass Q49054 05587 A .
Cross the main road and head due east uphill following a distinct track for 200 meters, then keep east and had for An Cnapán Mór and then to Cnoc na Bánóige
From the east: start from the car park beside Lough Annascaul Q58253 05092 B and ascend directly up the steep eastern slope. This becomes tricky around 400m elevation when you must ascend through a narrow gully which involves some climbing - and a warning - this can be a little dangerous in wet conditions. After that continue directly west for about 500m to reach Knockmulanane and then a further 2km west takes you to the summit, marked by a cairn. The terrain is a mixture of grass and heather and quite uneven. 2.5 hours car to summit.
The views from this ridge are spectacular both to Dingle Bay to the south and the high isolated plateau of Central Dingle. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/207/comment/4967/

From the summit cairn Of Cnoc na Bánóige looking along the ridge to Knockmulane and Dromavally Mountain(slightly to the left).In the background you can make out the Slieve Mish mountains rising up over Tralee.The ridge has no evidence of walker damage even though the views of the Brandons and across Dingle Bay are just stunning.

See Knockmulanane for the start of this walk

Arrived here from Knockmulanane, on which has been our driest day of our holiday in Dingle. Continued over pt609 (lots of quartz in the rocks) and descended down into Windy Gap. Where we switched direction, walking NE past a right angle turn in the stream at 540056 C, turning north past spot height pt364, crossing a fence and then a track (not marked on the map or even the new 1:25,000 Brandon map) to reach the summit of Slievenagower.

See Slievenagower for continuation. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/207/comment/4166/
