Ascent from near Loughanawillan Loughs
by bsheils  16 Jun 2013
Commenced ascent on a fine summer's day (12/06/2013) along forest entrance (G 054 011 A) close to Loughanawillan Loughs (north of Cloondaff village) and I proceeded on forest tracks to a turning area at grid ref. G 03492 02398 B. From here I had a steep ascent along a channel of relatively short vegetation which brought me up to the remains of a fence just above forestry tree line at G 03452 02615 C. This ascent route, while steep, appears to be easiest in the area as felled tree trunk stumps and forestry dominate elsewhere along this slope. The forest track that I left below continues westward beyond the turning area but on investigating ascent route from the very end of this track I found it more difficult due to high vegetation hiding streams and timber cuttings.

From G 03452 02615 C I followed an intermittent stoney track along the remains of the fence (watch out for fence wire on the ground) in a west north-westerly direction to the three cairned summit of Birreencorragh South Top. Great views from here especially of Birreencorragh to the north and Buckoogh Mountain and Clew Bay to the west. I continued my walk to take in Birreencorragh and Knockaffertagh Mountains.
