One way, not necessarily the best, of reaching this summit is to park at R82340 63991 A where there is space for a few cars. Walk into the forest following the tracks (marked reasonably accurately on the 1:50k at this point) until you get to 836641 B. Go east across the stream and reach the track. Follow the track towards the summit. There are two possible tops. One which probably is the higher is in the trees and can be reached by going to a foresters path cut through the trees starting at R84547 64474 C which is at the NE edge of the forest. The summit is about 70m SW of this point along the forester's track.

The other candidate summit is at R8448 6470 D and has the advantage of being in the open with some sort of view.

Perhaps it would be easier to reach this summit from somewhere else such as what appears as a forest entrance at R854652 E

It is possible to go from the summit to Knockane some 2.1km north however the route we found was difficult and circuitous taking us through briars, young forest, wet felled areas etc until we found the track marked on the map which skirts the summit to the south and turns for the top at R8440 6633 F. Perhaps someone else knows a better way. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/616/comment/3623/
