The picture I took from the Spot Height 442 IG 69917 85272 A which provides a much better profile of Cnoc Na Péiste was poor so I'm including this one taken on the opposite side of the mountain from Balbane Hill. A short drop from the top of the former and a short traverse over rather marshy ground, with the windfarm to your right, will take you from summit to summit in 15-20 minutes.
