A real sting in the tail.
by Harry Goodman  22 Jul 2011
Climbed Monabrack on 10 10 10 as the fifth and final top of a circuit that also included Temple Hill, Knockaterrif Beg, Lyracappul and Carrignabinnia (For previous part of the route see my comments on Carrignabinnia). On leaving Carrignabinnia R8500023700 C we went SE across a broad flat moorland and crossed over a wall. As we started to descend a spur, heading for Monabrack, our direction changed to just east of south passing over a prominant litte knoll on the way down to the coll R8560022300 D. The climb up to the top of Monabrack was steep and long, made more so by a false top crossed some way from the summit area. Coming as it did for us as the last of a five top round it was the sting in the tail. From the flat summit area, marked by a small pile of stones R8597721887 E we had an excellent view of the full Galtymore ridge and back to Lyracappul. To complete our walk we continued SE down a long spur to pick up a fence and grassy track at around R8620021200 F and then down to a forest path, past an old abandoned mobile home, back to the start R8680019700 G The last part of our walk, from the top of Monabrack down to the start, could be reversed and used as an access route for this mountain.
