Ballysitteragh while not particularly high, is definitely very challenging. I've climbed it 3 times, on all occasions it's been part of a loop starting in Cloghane, work our way up to Brandon, Brandon Peak, Gearhane, Ballysitteragh, Conor Pass. We then leave the road at the Conor Pass and across the bog to meet with a small boreen that brings you back to Cloghane.

I've attached a photo that shows the fabulous view from the top of Ballysitteragh heading towards the Conor Pass. It was taken last April. In the photo you can see Tralee Bay and Cloghane. You might also be able to make out the small road that starts at the lake (lower left corner). This is the road that we joined to bring us back into Cloghane after cutting down from the Conor Pass.
