Started this linear walk of the Cooley ridge from car park at pub right on the border at Cornamucklagh. J12050 19107 starC. Walked up road for about 1km and around to cross-road taking right turn uphill in the direction of Flagstaff so as to start the ascent from the start of the forested area. Following along its boundary wall, as much of the eastern side of the hill around this area is covered in heavy undergrowth. Made good speed up to point where wall turns west. From here broke across the open hillside and continued to make my way steadily towards the summit. The summit area is quite broad and there is a small cairn at J 10370 17688 starD. However, a rocky area J 10567 17781 starE about 40m south in direct line with the masts on Clermont Cairn appears to me to be a higher point. GPS reading here was 429m Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/699/comment/2895/
