I assume that the correct name for this hill is 'Shehy More' rather than 'Carrigmount'. On the 1:50,000 Discovery map and on the old 1:126,720 OS map, the small peak on the spur to the East (342m / 1131ft) is named 'Carrigmount'. Went up the track as suggested by 'Mart' here and up past Lake Nambrackderg. Easy going although a little boggy at times. The summit is marked by a wooden stick in the ground, no cairn or trig point. Stunning views of West Cork, from Mullaghanish, the Paps and Caherbarnagh in the North, Knockboy to the West around to Bantry Bay and Cape Clear to the South. The photo shows Shehy More as seen from Lake Nambrackderg to the Northeast. It shows the steep Northern slope. The Southern slope is much the same which gives it that 'pyramid' shape when seen edge on. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/365/comment/1741/
