Short Summary created by jackill,  31 Oct 2010
Park at V78640 53567 A, room for 3 cars. If the shop is closed parking is also possible at V78656 5346 B. There is a rough track leading east from the highest point of the pass.Pick your way upwards around easy, rock shelfs onto a level rocky ridge. As you leave this ridge look for a grassy slope on the side of Knockowen to ascend to the summit cairn on a low rock shelf.
Carry on from Knockowen to Cushnaficulla.
There are two possible summits on top of rocky shelves.The discovery series OSI maps them as 594 and 596 meters, however the old 6 inch maps lists both at 1942 feet(approx. 592 mtrs).
GPS readings on both suggest equal heights of 597 meters.
Better climb both then Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/287/comment/5047/
