Notes on name: In the OS Name Book John O'Donavan suggests the derivation Cnoc Lomannach [JOD], 'hill of the pinnacle'. This would account for the anglicised form Knocklomena. There seems to be some confusion between Ir. meannán, 'a kid goat' and mionnán, 'a pinnacle'.

This mountain is most closely related to the ridge east of it, extending to Boughil. An easy climb of about 350 metres can be made over grassy slopes from the East. More direct approaches from above the lake not for the faint-hearted. Descent to the south is feasible with caution. Photo 2 shows Mullaganattin seen from the summit in a 180mm equivalent lens. Photo 3 is remarkable in that in combines a clear-air view of the Reeks with a Brocken Spectre. Unique in my experience (29-12-03.) Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/208/comment/799/

Yes it's the obvious gully. It's a real scramble. You can stay in the gully for first 1/3, here you'll meet a very slippery rockface. I went south from gully to get around this. Up higher, I crossed the gully to the north after I got stuck. I was on my own, but if you would go with more people and ropes, you be able to complete the climb. Good luck!!

Easier descent route available
by glencree 25 Jun 2021
Followed Jackill's suggested ascent by the sheep fence (B (V80608 78026)), which is a stiff climb but does not require scrambling - there are wonderful views of the nearby summits on the way up and eastwards to Beara and the Kenmare river from the summit. On the descent, it's much easier to come down the grassy slope parallel to the fence and about 20m east. This leads down to the grassy track which can be followed back to the entry point.

Climbed Knocklomena today as part of a ring walk (not exactly a horse shoe). Approached from the west side of Lough Fadda, up the gully. Got up as far as 3/4 had to divert then to the north. Too much steep rock (overhanging in places). It was worth the try though! you would have to bring ropes to complete the last part. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/208/comment/3827/
