The climb out of the Vee gap up Knockaunabulloga for 390 metres is energy sapping at this stage of the trek. We followed zig zag paths and tracks up for half way but they then seemed to head away from the summit so it was necessary to cross the heather again. As Simon has commented already even on the slopes there are Rhododendron which are a rare sight on most mountains. The photo shows Knockaunabulloga in the foreground, Bay Lough to the right and Knockshanahullion in the background. See Knockshanahullion to continue the traverse.
