Actually climbed this top back in March 09 as part of the Owenglin circuit finishing on Benbaun and exiting via the forest tracks which neatly bring you back to the river crossing at point A. Splendid views were had the whole way round and we managed to get back to the hotel at Maam Cross to catch the rugby! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/608/comment/4646/
