In search of the elusive "pole", a truly ripping yarn !
by Harry Goodman  19 Aug 2010
Having read three5four0's comments about "the pole" I went in search of it on 11 August 2010 as my intended route to this hill but to no avail !! I drove E up the Gortinure Road from New Buildings and then left C422121 A on to the Kittybane Road on the west side of the hill but could not spot the "pole". I therefore decided to park at, but not blocking access to, a farm lane on the left at C4270613190 B. There was no one at home but a lady passing told me she did not think there would be any problem with where I was parked. I crossed the road and once over a farm gate went uphill keeping the fence line to my right and followed it up over several fences to the top which, as three5four0 had advised, was a meeting point for a three way wall/fence junction C4341212790 C. Before descending by my route of ascent I went out a short distance NW to a small ring contour for a better view down over the Foyle and to the Donegal Highlands and Bluestacks beyond. I could not say I enjoyed this climb as the clambering over barbed wire fences became quite tedious and made even more so by seiously ripped trousers!! Total distance up and down was 1.8k completed easily within 45 minutes. Once back at my car and driving along the Kittybane Road I passed double metal gates to my left and just inside a single thick post on its own and not part of any fence line. Had I at last found three5four0's elusive "pole". It was at C4265813036 D and only about 200 metres from my starting point. Sod's law reigns supreme! Clondermot Hill, Slievekirk and Gortmonly Hill can all be climbed quite comfortably, with not too much driving, on the same afternoon or morning. For links see my comments on each of the other hills.

You are best to Ascend this Summit by asking permission to park and Walk up it f
by jimmyread  7 Aug 2015
We tried to ascend this hill today from the pole at Kittybane Road mentioned by others, but there were high doubled barbed wire fences that were dangerous to climb and the gorse was impassible. We decided to try to ascend via the access track from Gortinure Road to the transmitter, but as mentioned by others the land owner did challenge us and said that the track was private property and the there was a transmitter track from the north that we could access. We drove back down Kittybane Road and turned right onto Corrody Road and then found a track to the right which the drove up and then parked at the end of the track. At this point a farmer came up to us and said that there was no track to the transmitter from this end and the ascent would be full of ditches and mentioned to try the transmitter track from Gortinure Road, we mentioned that the tried this and the land owner to us to ascend up to the transmitter from this end. The farmer was surprised that this land owner would not let us use this track and recommended that we go to a farm on Trench Road, just past the right folk for Church Road and this farm was under the name of Walsh. We drove up to this farm (C442128 E) and the farmer there gave us permission to ascent to the summit of Clondermot Hill via his fields and allowed us to park in his farm as well. This was a steep route, but easier going than the route from the pole at Kittybane Road. This farmer was also surprised that the land owner would not let people walk up the transmitter track even through it is probably is a public right of way. The best way to ascend Clondermot Hill is from Walsh farm on Trench Road, not from the pole on Kittybane Road, but ask the farmer for permission through before ascending this hill from this farm.

three5four0 on Clondermot Hill, 2009
by three5four0  24 Aug 2009
The way to summit of Clondermot Hill lies not via the masts access track, but via the fields instead. Whilst asking if it was ok to park near a Farm House i also asked about the track, while the two people chatting agreed that the track may be a right of way, the land owner was very likely to challenge anyone walking up the track. Both recommended walking up by the "pole" (on the west side) instead, as this was the way they always went to the summit. After driving back and forth on the minor road we stopped to ask a runner, he directed us back the way we came with much the same description as we had been given before, this time we found the pole, or I should say a pole!

From this point we walked through a gate uphill several fields, reaching the summit area which was bisected by a 3 way wall junction. The wall being the highest point, with ground on either side being of a similar height, best to visit both sides then! Descent was by way of ascent.

If going to climb this hill, i would enquire locally or ask anyone you meet about the best way up, as everyone we asked had been to the top via the fields, rather than the track to the mast. So there seems to be no problem with ascending this way, but it never hurts to make sure in these cases. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1026/comment/4038/

Pleasant Walk Apart From The "Jagging"
by Aidy  9 Apr 2015
A fairly quick little hill to ascend which made for a nice spring evening walk. I parked at the junction of Kittybane and Gortinure Road, then walked north along the Kittybane Road until I reached the step over the wire fence shown in prehenrambler's photo. Crossing the field there was a stile and a small bridge over a ditch. I then continued east a short way through gorse which was fairly thick in places and difficult to get through. Emerging from this I then turned north again along the higher edge of two fields, taking this route because there were steps over the wire fences in this direction, suggesting access was not an issue. The summit was now to the east, and there was another patch of difficult gorse to get through.

At the top, there were good views southwest, upstream along the Foyle, southeast to Slievekirk and north to Derry and Lough Foyle. I could also see a quicker route back down to the Kittybane Road, directly west across open fields. I don't know if there are access problems crossing this land, but I was prepared to risk it rather than go through the gorse again! On the ascent, it may be better to go further north along the Kittybane Road than I did, before heading east for the summit, thus avoiding a "jagging" from the gorse. Up and down in about an hour.
