simon3 on Ballycurragh Hill, 2003
by simon3  1 Apr 2003
I think I would recommend Ballycurragh Hill only to the most dedicated summit bagger. For a start as of 2003 much of the summit is covered by adolescent (very prickly) Sitka spruce. The summit itself is marked as being within these trees, though whether it is really there is hard to determine. As you can see from the 1:50k map the summit area is only partly unforested giving you at most a 90 degree view. None of the main southern Wicklow mountains are visible.

Our trip to the summit was marred from the start. Although we had tried to start further south, we found a noisy scrambler competition in full swing so we actually started at the entrance that the Wicklow Way uses. There’s space for one or two cars here, at T 070 836. There is a zig-zag pattern of forest roads represented on the map. The map turned out to be accurate as to the relative position of these tracks (though GPS showed absolute errors of as much as 300m). It should have been easy to walk up these zig-zags, if tedious. But we found the scramblers were using an unpredictable mixture of roads and routes through the trees.
Having decided that discretion is the better part of valour during scrambler races we found ourselves walking up one narrow ride (unplanted linear gap in the forest) which abruptly stopped leaving us with a hands and knees route under the lower branches of the said Sitka. Finally emerging bedraggled from the trees we found that we were once again in the midst of the scramblers! Hurrying from them and with the help of the GPS we eventually found our way to the summit. Although the summit was part of the scramblers route, by the time we reached it, they had packed in for the day.
The photo shows the small cairn near the top. The faint summits on the skyline are the Blackstairs to the South West. The ground rising to the left is part of the unnamed hill at 431m. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/381/comment/417/
