There is a ledge and cliff to the east of the summit named Altmore Cliff.   Altnapaste is the 1024th highest place in Ireland. Altnapaste is the most easterly summit in the Bluestack Mountains area.

A great wee hill
by Wildcat  27 Jul 2012
Trip report 19 July 2012. We parked by the roadside at grid ref H038940 F then followed the four-wheel-drive track northwards to the little forest at grid ref H040955 G. Continued up steep ground to the north-east, not too wet despite recent poor weather. Surface a mixture of heather and grass, some boggy ground with a couple of ditches, easily crossed or avoided. Fence easily and safely crossed at around 280m then up steep heather slopes to the western end of the summit area, large cairn at east end just over 100m away with remains of wooden structure nearby. Excellent views westwards to the rest of the Blue Stacks, eastwards down the Finn Valley and northwards to Slieve Snaght and Errigal's distinctive spike. Only about 180m of ascent by this route and the round trip took about two hours. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/883/comment/14732/
