Provisionally a Vandeleur-Lynam?
by simon3 24 Jun 2010
According to the map the summit area is over 590m however there is no spot height. On taking GPS measurements with two GPSs on what appeared to be highest of the candidate outcrops, the height measured at 600 to 601m. Further measurement with accurate tools will be necessary however there is a strong possibility that this is a Vandeleur-Lynam or 600m top. At the next revision of summit information we may provisionally mark it as such to let summiteers know it needs to be done or at least until such time as more accurate measurements are made.

Tievnabinnia East is the second hill traversing the Sheefrys east to west and is more impressive than the first, Tawny Rower (see for first part of traverse). Yet it still feels like an obstacle to overcome before reaching the bigger hills rising behind it. It is quite steeply sided with the beautiful Lough Lugacolliwee to the north and the Glenlaur Valley to the south backed by the extensive and impressive southern ridge of Tievnabinnia. From the col with Tawny rower it is a short climb over good ground to the summit plateau. It was misty here and without a bearing on the next col with Tievnabinia I would have had difficulty in navigating over pretty featureless terrain. There are pools of water before the drop to the next col and some shelter for a bit of lunch. As drop down to the col there are views north to the next body of water, Lugaloughaun. But the dramatic Glenlaur River falling some 1,000 ft down the face of Tievnabinnia draws most attention (see pic). See Tievnabinnia for continuation of traverse. Linkback:

Made a steep but dry ascent from the col with Tawny Rower, with Lough Lugacolliwee below at the base of the cliffs to the right. The summit plateau was (again, like Tawny Rower) a wide confusing area with more than one candidate for the highest point. Exactly the kind of thing we baggers hate. The map doesn't help, so after wandering around assessing the merits of the higher areas I opted for a low outcrop where I added a small pile of stones. This, incidently, is visible on the ascent from Tawny Rower. Linkback:

Colin Murphy on Tievnabinnia East Top
by Colin Murphy 4 Sep 2009
Approaching Tievnabinnia East Top from the west (from its its bigger brother) is about a 2km walk, mostly gentle as one nears the col, but then suddenly treacherous, esp in poor weather, as there are several points where the ground simply falls away with a drop of about 20m. Navigating around these, the climb to the top is relatively easy, but the top itself is maddening. There were three distinct points which might have marked the true summit, separated by about 300m. Having trudged to each, my GPS indicated that a rocky outcrop near the SW was the winner by 1m, but can you trust these things? Linkback:

Vandeleur Lynam?
by bryanmccabe 4 Aug 2014
Arising from simon3's comment made in June 2010, I rambled around the highest ground on Tievnabinnia East Top today, hoping to see the altitude readout on my SATMAP GPS climb to the 600m mark. Alas, I couldn't get it to read above 597m, although there were several locations at which I got readings of 596m and 597m. It would be good to have a definitive conclusion on this one. Linkback:
