New Comment: Nutter Mountain no more!
by Jamessheerin  14 Oct 2016
Bad news for Peter1, good news for everyone else... this hill is no longer one for the nutter! A new phone mast and road to it has made this an easy one. Not that it was easy for me either! I didn't know about the road so took the difficult way in. Check out the accompanying map... just use the exit line for entry and exit. Park at R21998 71778 A. Take the right fork at R217 716 B. Leave the road going right at R21269 71092 C. The trig is an easy 100m. Or... just take the difficult way? Its great fun! Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1196/comment/18653/

First ascent!

This is one for the enthusiast...or nutter. My excuse is that it was my 60th birthday and I wanted to bag an MV 'First Ascent'
Park just East of the start point of the GPS track where there is space for 2 cars. Follow the forest track and after passing the mobile phone mast, head into the forest to look for the trig. pillar - which is around one third the height of a 'normal' pillar.
On leaving the pillar, I headed East through the forest to pick up the forest track and back to the car.
Note: the forest is very hard work! In orienteering terms, it is 'fight'... Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1196/comment/16082/
