Starting from Kilclooney Wood Carpark this is a straightforward circuit of Coumshingaun. Straightforward certainly but it is actually a steep scramble in places both going up and down. There is an uncertain beaten path in places. On the occasion we did it the hardest part was just before reaching the plateau at the top. Here ice had made the slight zigzag track unuseable at times so we took a short cut up over snowy heather. Difficult and somewhat exposed. Coming down is also quite dramatic. The route is over largish blocks for much of the way made harder on this occasion by snow and ice.
