A short winter horseshoe walk
by peter1  29 Dec 2013
A perfect winter's day to climb two peaks that are off the main Galtees ridge and that I hadn't climbed before. I parked at a small grass layby at grid ref R858 201 A (see track info too). The ascent of Knockaterriff from the south is very straightforward and at a fairly easy angle. I descended into the Blackrock River valley north of the summit, omitting Knockaterriff Beg, (having climbed it before!). The descent from Monabrack to the Blackrock valley is quite steep though the going is good. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/121/comment/15292/
