With the introduction of the 400 meter list new opportunities presented themselves in the four peaks at the far eastern end of the Knockmealdowns. I parked the car at S11184 08337 B and headed over a rusty gate and followed the track to Knocknasculloge. I retraced my steps back as far as S11780 07951 A and climed the 100 meters to the summit over very rough ground. The summit is covered with old turf cutting banks.
The view back towards the higher peaks and over to the Comeraghs and Slievenamon is worth the little effort needed to climb Knocknanask .
I am sure my photo taken on a damp Sunday does not do it justice.
