CHimney Rock climb
by hbowman  18 Apr 2010
Climbed Chimney Rock Mountain yesterday in fairly good conditions - a good walk. Started off from Carrick Little and headed towards Hares Castle keeping Annalong Forest to our right. After a bit of a scramble up to Hares Castle, very fine views opened up of the Annalong Valley. Thereafter we headed toward Chimney Rock. At the summit excellent views opened up of Donard, Commedagh, the Castles, Beg, Cove, Lamagan and Rocky Mountain. In the background Bernagh and Slieveloughshannagh could be seen. On descent we headed toward Spences Mountain and Long Seefin before returning to Carrick Little. The whole walk was just over 10 miles and took approx 6 hours, but one which I would recommend Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/178/comment/4642/
