Having been classified as an Arderin Beg only last year, this peak is relatively rarely visited. It is somewhat isolated and its connection with Knockeirky, some 2.5k to the north, is tenuous to say the least.

The most obvious places to start for an up and down climb lie on minor roads to the east of the main road south of the Healy Pass. At V810 531 there is a farmyard at the end of a cul de sac. A very friendly farmer allowed me to park and directed me north initially in order to avoid his fences. This wasn't the inconvenience it might seem; some of those fences were pretty high ...

There are two significant river crossing on the route, neither of which should prove any problem but which do require care.

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 50m + 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.
