From the car park at molls gap follow the narrow country lane down to the pass between to stumpa duloigh and Knocklomena. The gps track can be followed but a better option would be to follow the fence up the ridge as it would be less tiring terrain for the ascent. From the top of knocklomena follow the spur as per the gps track down to north bank of lough fada. From there find the farm track which to take you midway up the slope to bascadh. A rocky stream bed can then be used to ascend Bascadh to just below the summit of bascadh, continue ascending till you meet the fence. The fence line can then be followed for the remainder of the ridge. It may be preferable to stray from the fenceline from time to time (especially when descending to the gap from Boughil) to find the easiest walking line.
