Fine views and few walkers
Short Summary created by aidand,  22 Aug 2013
Access issues require a diversion along a stretch of the Duhallow Way. There is parking for a couple of cars outside a well maintained bungalow, with two noticeable garden lamps, at 193 892 A. There was no Duhallow Way sign on the road here when I visited. Walk up through the field immediately to the right of the house and you will soon pick up the 'yellow man'. The D Way brings you along the base of the mountain heading West for about a mile and then swings South into a short valley. Leave the D Way where it crosses the fence by a stile and continue up this valley to the col ahead at about 173 865 B. Turn left at the col and ascend Caherbarnagh NW top heading in a North-Easterly direction. From the NW top it is only a 15 minute walk to the main summit, but be careful to avoid the cliffs on your left.
Descend initially in a South-West direction, then head West back to the col and down onto the D Way.
Allow about 5 hours for the return trip. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/135/comment/4895/
