Climbed Knockastakeen on Sat 26/08/05. Surprisingly stiff climb considering it looks quite gentle from the base. Lovely views from the summit and was quite enjoying it until swarms of midges descended upon us and drove us down to Lough Muskry for some short-lived relief. After a peaceful 5 mins at the lake they sniffed us out and drove us back to civilisation. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/307/comment/1921/
