eflanaga on Meenard Mountain, 2007

Walk commenced at entrance to Altbritain Forest and ascent via track & open hillside to Mullaghaneany summit. Crossing the fence near Mullaghneany’ summit IH68586 98620 B we walked adjacent to the fence dropping to the col leading on to Meenard. Generally, I would tend to leave the fence at this stage and make my way across the mountain but decided on the day to follow the fence around to the point on its north-eastern flank where it turns to climb up Meenard. The ground close to the fence on the ascent is difficult with lots of peat-hags to negotiate. I found that by staying roughly about 100m to the left of the fence the ground improved greatly after about 150m of climb making the going much easier to the summit IH67284 98562 C which is marked by a small cairn of white stones atop a peat-hag. Again, (following a short period where mist enveloped the summit) as on Mulaghaneany, we were greeted by fantastic panoramic views in all directions. Sawel and Dart (with a peculiar cloud over it) were bathed in sunshine, while in the distance across the valley, to the north-east, Benbradagh’s long ridge & snout lay invitingly. Mist beyond Benbradagh stole away the chance to see Binevenagh, Lough Foyle and the Innishowen Hills in Donegal often clearly visible from here. From here we were going to make for some of the area’s less well known and infrequently visited hills, new territory for us despite our experience in the Sperrins. Principal among these was Mullaghgash, a fantastic looking mountain and, which at 485m, should hopefully make the proposed 400+ section soon to be included here on the Mountain Views site. I will include a description of the route there when that resource is available. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/243/comment/2608/
