A slightly shorter and probably easier route to this bold Sperrin hill. Several minor roads lead north from the Five Mile Straight leaving Moneyneany, and the map suggests that one of these can be used to gain a track snaking up to the summit area. So it proves.
The car can't be parked at the absolute public road end, but there's plenty of spots a few hundred yards lower down. From here, follow the road out onto the track, which winds its way easily upwards with fine views south and west. After a lot of contouring the track cuts back east harshly, and from its end it's a short distance to the summit over comfortable peaty ground.
To save time on the descent I cut the corner of the uphill route; steep but straightforward.

Note: ALL information such as Ascent, Length and Creator time taken etc should be regarded as approximate. The creator's comments are opinions and may not be accurate or still correct.
Your time to complete will depend on your speed plus break time and your mode of transport. For walkers: Naismith's rule, a rough and often inaccurate estimate, suggests a time of 1h 38m + time stopped for breaks
Note: It is up to you to ensure that your route is appropriate for you and your party to follow bearing in mind all factors such as safety, weather conditions, experience and access permission.
