On 23/10/04 we traversed from Cush to Knockastakeen and headed for an opening in the forest where a stream flows at point 905264 G. Instead of the small opening we expected there was a gap in the forest approx. 80 metres wide. In the valley between the two mountains we came across this stream which after previous days rain was in full flow. The climb of 240 metres height gain to Knockastakeen is stiff.
