Tough approach up the northern slope
by wicklore  22 Jul 2014
The wooden gate at L8363681110 A gives access onto an initially promising track that becomes tangled and overgrown in places. It eventually peters out at a dead end and there are some difficult briars and high heather to get through to reach the northern slope of Kinknock. This northern slope is difficult enough. The high heather intertwined with briars and new growth which all cover the remnants of previous deforestation make underfoot conditions tricky in places, and make the haul up this slope hard work. I found an old rusted metal rope buried in the heather that was anchored somewhere up above. It was probably used as a zipline for the deforestation, and I glady used it to gain some ground up the difficult slope!

The summit area is easy to manouver around and gives expansive views east to Ben Goram and Croagh patrick, south to the Sheeffry's, north to Clew Bay and the dstant Nephin Beg's, and west across to the Atlantic and its islands. ,br> Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1325/comment/17563/
