There is a ledge and cliff to the east of the summit named Altmore Cliff.   Altnapaste is the 1027th highest place in Ireland. Altnapaste is the most easterly summit in the Bluestack Mountains area.

Short Summary created by Harry Goodman  25 Jul 2013
From H067963 A on the R253 take minor road SW and park at H0378894017 B. Walk NNW down a stone and gravel track and follow it along (swinging NNE) for some 1.5km. At a small tree plantation H040964 C leave the track and, keeping the trees on the left, ascend NE crossing a fence at H0417895602 D. Continue up NE and note a fence on the right heading up in the same direction. Follow it's line up and at its high point the summit cairn lies a few metres to the left at H0455095983 E. For relatively little effort the reward for this climb is a superb 360 degree panorama of the Donegal hills and mountains with the long line of the Bluestacks from Barnesmore to Agla Mt particularly prominent.
