Short Summary created by jackill,  1 Nov 2010
Park at V80498 57651 A, small layby room for 2 cars. Go through the gate and walk downhill past a house and up into Glenrastel. As you enter the valley, keeping to the right of the river, note the distinct zig-zag track descending Pookeen to your north. This is your way down from Cummeenbaun. Walking up the valley cross the river at a low rock shelf(Mccools step) and leave the river bank ascending due north. As you gain a rocky, slabbed ridge turn west for Cummeenbauns summit. Descend via the zig-zag path. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/431/comment/5190/
