The name Fáschom properly refers to the next coom immediately south of Coumshingaun. The name may refer either to its wild nature or to the fact that, unlike many of the cooms which cut into the Comeragh plateau, it has no lake. Knockaunapeebra / Cnocán an Phíopaire is the name of a a lower peak to the SW.   Kilclooney Mountain is the highest mountain in the Comeragh Mountains area and the 48th highest in Ireland. Kilclooney Mountain is the second highest point in county Waterford.

Why not take in another lake?
by thomas_g  20 Mar 2012
Starting from Kilclooney wood S342 102 A , I went up the ridge south of the lough. It was more difficult than I expected due to slippery mud and a freezing cross wind, but the clear weather made the views worthwhile. The final steep bit was thankfully sheltered from the wind and easier than it looks, but if you didn't know about it in advance the pleasant walk along the ridge before it would lull you into a false sense of an easy walk to the summit.
Walking around the lake you can choose to descend via the ridge north of the lake (Stookangarriff) or if you don't fancy what can be a slippery descent or simply can't get enough of the coum's. You can head from approx S323 115 C for the spot height 494 at S331 123 D, take in a lovely view of Crotty's before heading for the edge of the trees S338118 E and back across the valley to Kilclooney.
