Knocknadobar N is easyily reached from Knocknadobar. By my GPS it is only 19m ascent from the col. The descent down the western spur starts off easily enough; the usual steep, heather covered slope. About two thirds of the way down things start to get interesting. We came upon a wall with a newly erected fence atop. The sort that says, "Don't even think about crossing over onto my land...". Crossing it would have resulted in a labarinth of stone walls and fields to negotiate, only to end up in somebody's back garden. We were left with two choices. Follow the fence left and then down the creek, or follow it right and hope that it didn't disappear off a cliff. We went right. Good choice as there was a path down. Mostly a sheep track; they seemed to prefer this side of the fence too. When we got down to sea level there were more fun and games. Most of the path has been eroded and fallen into the sea. Lucky for us the tide was out enough for us to clamber over the rocks and get back to the car at Connanna Harbour. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/267/comment/3602/
