This can be reached from the road running from Ballingeary to Top of Coom. There is a wide track which runs up to the summit triangulation post and then continues around the head of the vallley and along the county bounds. It would be possible to walk along the ridge to Gougane Barra.
The climb is very easy but the views are very good and there is plenty of room for a long walk. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/493/comment/3144/
