NE finger from the Twelve Bens offers a way in.
Short Summary created by simon3, scapania, wicklore  21 May 2019
Knockpasheemore (Binn Charrach) is a small summit at the end of a 2km ridge heading NE from the lower scree slopes of Benbaun, and makes a worthwhile climb either in its own right, or as a diversion on the way to Benbaun. While it can be approached, across blanket bog and up steep grassy slopes, from the Glencorbet Valley to the north (ample parking just after the bridge at L799574 A) that route is most often used to head up Benbaun, bypassing the Knockpasheemore summit in the process. The most direct route to Knockpasheemore is to start from the east at L81226 56960 B. As of 2019 the layby near there may not be available so may need to go further. The owners of the land in the Gleninagh valley DO NOT want you to park on their access road though they are happy to allow hillwalking. A sturdy fence can be overcome by following it to the NW for a few minutes where it ends.

The views are truly astounding, ranging from the distant Mweelrea and Sheeffry groups, to the nearer Maumturks and some of the main Twelve Bens, with many other hills and mountains visible in all directions. The most spectacular view is perhaps of the Bens just across the Gleninangh Valley to the south. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/775/comment/5534/
