Usual parking spot at the start of the olde Kenmare - Killarney route through the mountains. It will be apparent that Peakeen has to be approached from the ~NE direction as steep Southern and Eastern sides.Peakeen reached easily but a this opens up the vista of the wild, rugged but tough terrain to cross to reach its two western summits. Despite excellent conditions, on the way back (not looking at GPS or map) got somewhat disorientated by false tracks in the valley which I mistook for the Kenmare-Killarney Way and by the fact that from the West, Knockanaguish looks more prominent than Peakeen. Anyway after an inital foray along Peakeens western slopes eventually took out the GPS and was back on track.
