Round of Inchinagoum 2

After lunch in our car and the morning efforts on The Priests Leap and Derroograne hills, the weather showing much improvement. We decided to take in Knockboy South Top and Coomhola Mountain, in the afternoon sun shine.

Walked down the road till V99070 60420 A, where we followed an old track up hill. This petters out before you reach the top of this broad ridge. Cross the fence and descend down to a small river (you should be able to see a small dam / hydro works a short distance down stream from you), cross this stream and climb up the other side. From here it's only round 60 metres of ascent and just over a km distance to the summit of Knockboy South Top. It is a fine summit too & whilst there we spotted a figure making the top of Knockboy, and perhaps they were the owner of the car parked beside ours at the Priests Leap. Strangely, this was to be one of only the two times we spotted other walkers on the hills in Beara, on our week long trip there. Plenty on the Beara way, but only 2 on the hills we climbed, all week.

See Coomhola from the continuation. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/389/comment/6017/
