Short Summary created by CaptainVertigo  30 Aug 2014
Although Lackabane is generally encountered as part of the Cummeengeera circuit, there is no reason why it cannot be tackled as part of a duet with Tooreenbaha , or even on its own. The ascent from the Pocket carpark at V75426 55335 A (currently subject to an access/parking charge of €4) is very steep, firstly to the col with Tooreenbaha, and then up the ridge to the summit. An easier approach begins at V76724 57296 B and proceeds over Tooreenbaha at a gentle enough incline, leaving plenty of energy for the final pull up from the col. Lackabane is beautifully positioned for views back to Eskatarriff and across to Coomacloghane and Tooth. Hungry Hill lies immediately to the south and seem enormous. But none of these views match up to the extraordinary drama of the descent from Lackabane towards Tooreenbaha. The slope is narrow enough, and steep enough, to give the walker unrestricted views of Glanmore valley and lake, the eastern Cahas, Knockatee and Kenmare River. These are wonderful landscapes, all revealed at once, especially for the walker who has come the long way round from Tooth. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/268/comment/5028/
