Smaller Twin
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy, march-fixer  25 May 2015
A rocky twin top with Knockbrinnea (W), this nice vantage point provides fantastic views north and north east over a wide agricultural hinterland. It is an also excellent vantage point for views into the Hag's Glen. It is easily reached along a sloping ridge from the handy car-park at Lisleibane V82714 87307 starA.

An alternative starting point is Cronin's Carpark at V83600 87300 starB. Proceed along the track into the Hag's Glen until the bridge crosses the river at V826 864 starC. 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 15 minuted from car to summit.
