Magnificent because of the widening view as you ascend from Mulrany and because you reach one of the Corranabinnias, one of the most interesting summits in Ireland with its famous arete to the NE.
The descent from Corranabinnia SW could be tricky in mist because you need to hit the sharply descending ridge towards Treel exactly. The view includes Clew Bay and Clare Island.
The descent comes upon a bog road which can be followed west eventually reaching the N59 and a somewhat tedious road walk back to Mulrany.
