Climbed Truskmore via the RTE road on a very windy (gale force) and wet day. At the top, I also witnessed the icicles referred to by wicklore. The larger pieces are serious projectiles and anyone visiting the top in harsh Winter conditions should be aware of the danger posed by them. There was a hail shower when I was close to the RTE buildings and it was an eerie experience, with the hum of the machinery and the whining of the wind on the supporting cables.

Although I have nothing to substantiate it, I feel that the issue of access in the area in not as bad as was reported in the past. There are very few signs on gates and nothing that I could see directed linked to hillwalking. At the top I met a large group of walkers who had come in the East side, so they had obviously come over “private” land. If this is true it’s a welcome development as this is a beautiful area. As one leaves the horse-shoe road there is a terrific view of Benwiskin, which looks very impressive and is definitely worth a climb on another day.
