Clashcame is a townland name, interpreted by John O'Donovan as Clais Céim, 'trench of the step'. This seems to relate to the name Cuscamecurragh, which on Bald's map of Co. Mayo (1830) refers to part of the high ridge of the Sheeffry Hills (see Tievummera). Clashcame is situated at the western foot of this ridge. Barrclashcame is the top part of the townland. Previously Clashcame in MV. Walks: for a route along the main E-W ridge of the Sheeffry Hills, see Whilde & Simms, New Irish Walk Guide - West and North, 62-63.   Barrclashcame is the highest mountain in the Sheeffry Hills area and the 61st highest in Ireland. Barrclashcame is the second most westerly summit in the Sheeffry Hills area.

A Steep Climb
by Damian120  10 Jul 2022
I parked at A as detailed above. It's a steep climb from the outset and levels off for a section before you commence the final push over the scree and large boulders. It's a short scramble but requires caution through the series of large jagged rocks and boulders. The scenery of the valley floor below is nothing short of astounding. The Doolough Valley lies nestled in all its magnificent splendour. The vista of the "Ramp", gateway to Mweelrea Mountain, visible directly across Doolough lake is truly spectacular.
