If you're the kind of person who can't bear to waste the few hours before your flight back to England from Knock, then Slievemore is a very useful beast. When stood on the beach at Doogort the east ridge soars somewhat alluringly into the sky, and my decision to do this rather than Nephin seemed vindicated, so with time at a premium I went lightweight: just a camera, a map/compass and a Mars Bar. Walking along the coast road to the north-west, it's straightforward to quickly take to the slopes of Slievemore (670089 A) and work round to the ridge. This proves to be an easy climb, steep but short (sea level to 2200ft in not much more than a mile), no continuous path (lots of intermittent ones) but with the ridge well defined there are no navigational issues. The rocky sections conspicuous from below prove easy when reached, but provide some decent foregrounds for slightly melodramatic photos. The only real disappointment is that the summit isn't at the top of the steep part, a short walk over a plateau being necessary to gain it. But the gold bauble makes up for all that, surely? Oh, and the gloriously spacious views. If descending by this route watch out for crevices in the rock which could marmalise folk who aren't wise to their presence.

A cracking little climb at the edge of the world, with much to commend it. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/153/comment/3391/
