The start is at the car park for the Knockanroe Forest Recreation Area where there is parking for perhaps a dozen cars. The "Far East" top to the east is trivially easy to reach and isn't particularly exciting.
The ridge to the other summits narrows and, while it is hardly a knife edge, is nevertheless a true airy ridge with great and contrasting views on either side. There is a rough boggy track all the way to the west summit which has been somewhat chewed up by scramblers.
For variety this walk returned taking a southern diversion along a local looped walk which we would recommend.
