First ascent!
by peter1  2 Jun 2014
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/
