I seldom say this, but I am glad that having been here I don't have to go back. I started at the track to Shrone at W840 145 B where there is room to park 4-5 cars. I followed the track for approx 600 mtrs and turned off it onto a track that is not marked on the map , it looks like the farmer has constructed it in the last few years. This track allowed me to gain some height (100 mtrs approx.) before I struck out across open mountain(or should that be bog). The summit is gained by a hard slog over rutted ground with very wet conditions underfoot. The summit it self is marked only by a small pond , there is no cairn because there are no stones with which to build one . There is however some compensation in the fine views back over the Paps to Killarney, to the Cahas to the south and the Boggeraghs . From the summit I headed for Knocknagowan.This was a 3km trudge across bog, full of holes, covered in knee-high heather and energy sapping long coarse grasses. By the time I got to Knocknagowan no amount of Lucozade could revive me. I would recommend anyone coming to this area avoid the bog between these two summits. The picture was taken on the summit of Knocknabro looking towards the Paps. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/292/comment/1981/
