Bascadh, a cloudy and damp winters morning in early January.
I parked at a little layby at V 80532 77882 . I pulled on my winter woolies and walked up the road
a short distance to V 80608 78026 where I hopped the sheep wire and struck up the mountain on a rough track to another fence I crossed tnis fence and then followed it all the way to Knocklomenas summit. To the west over Lough Brin ,Mullaghanattin ,dark and brooding , to the east Bascadh beckoned. I descended the steep slope towards Lough Fadda and Lough Beg and all the while wondered at the perfectly rounded sandstone outcrops sculpted by the retreating glacial ice so long ago. After crossing the boulder field at Graignagower , I headed up a track that has been carved out on the mountainside, it seems to originate in Scarteen to the south.This track varies in quality but leads to about 410 meters . From there it was up to ths summit following a fence that tracks the edge of some rough rocky cliffs. I reached a fence junction and from there it was a short but very windy walk to the small summit cairn.
I didn't linger as the wind was now lashing me with horizontal hailstones!
Back down the same way and an exhausting struggle across 1 km of bog to meet the main road.
11 kms and 860 meters climbing. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/284/comment/2620/
