The Last straw
by eamonoc  22 Feb 2014
Climbed on 21/2/2014. From Rathdrum on the R752 take the road L2120 sign posted Moneystown. after approx 500mts the road forks take the righthand fork and proceed to point T20235 90905 B, there is a newly built bungalow here, parking for maybe two or three cars here. Follow path behind forest barrier mossy and damp to start but after 500mts it meets a more substantial path follow this uphill gaining height all the time until it reaches a fork at a large turning area take the left fork here and after about 300mts at the path`s highest point approx 1.54km form the start there is a path uphill to the right to a communications mast. Summit area is up behind mast in a mature wodded area, plenty of fallen trees hereabouts. Fine views towards Carrick Mt. Total time taken car to car 36mins and a distance of 3.41km Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1164/comment/15870/
