This peak offers a fine view north to Slieve Gullion and its satellites, and south to County Louth, but access is difficult due to dense undergrowth. A group of stones beside the triangulation pillar on the summit may be the Bohil Breaga of Tiffcrum (i.e. the false lad or shepherd) referred to by Michael J. Murphy in his book 'Mountain Year' (p. 40).   Tievecrom is the 1246th highest place in Ireland.

For anyone considering a visit to Tievecrom, be advised that there is a widescale tree felling operation uunderway at the moment, Mon to Fri. The result of this is that Tievecrom is almost completely forest free on its SW side. I started at J 025 146 E walked on good forest track to J 02469 14977 F, and easily headed uphill on a rough machine track through recently clear felled area to the wall mentioned by other MVrs at J 02412 15266 G, crossed the wall and had no difficulty attaining the summit from here. It took me about 18mins to get to the trig point from the car, and was even quicker on the return journey. Poor old Tievecrom has lost its air of impenetrability.
