From the south, parking available for only one car at W124 775 starB. Proceed uphill from junction with local road in a NNW direction along a rough stone covered road until you come to a six bar field gate on the right at W12277 78058 starC. Climb gate and continue to walk uphill across open grass/peaty farmland to summit point. Stone cairn marks the summit adjacent to a post and wire fence running along the County Cork/Kerry border. From the summit enjoy magnificent views across the Derrynasagart Mountain (Cnoic Dhaire na Sagart) range. Climb and return time to car takes approx. 1.5 hrs.
