Simple climb, fine summit
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy  22 Jun 2015
There is just about room for a single car to park close to a double gate at W054 647 A, just north of Gowlane Bridge. Cross the gate and you will see a track to the right. Follow this for a few hundred metres until is vanishes on the open hillside. Continue east across a gently rising slope, over mostly shortish grass, the ground firm underfoot, at least in summer. Cross the small stream at W062 645 B and turn SE, the ascent becoming steeper. You will encounter some large rock faces as you near the top, but these are generally easy to negotiate. The summit is marked by a small cairn topped by a pointy upright stone. Car to summit, 50 minutes. Great views in particular of Lough Nambrackderg set into the side of Caoinkeen SE Top to the west.
