Pillar to the East
Short Summary created by jackill,  9 Dec 2011
This summit can be accessed starting from The Black road carpark R89306 20345 A (ht333m)

The Black road is a rocky, easy to follow track that is usually used as a start to climbing Galtymore, and it winds gradually around the western flank of Knockeenatoung and up towards Galtybeg.
When you reach a large cairn under Galtybeg at a 'Y' in the track go straight ahead, the track ends after 300 meters in a large rocky area. On the west side of this area look for a faint track heading towards Galtybeg and follow it as far as you can.
It is best to keep to the west and get on the lower slopes of Galtybeg before turning east for Greenane West as this allows you to avoid the worst of the peat hags.
As you gain the lower slopes of Galtybeg turn east heading for R89476 24164 B, the col over Bohreen lough, and then up hill in 2 large steps and across a broad,boggy plateau to the summit of Greenane West. Continue eastwards dropping slightly by the rocky tor of O'Loughlins castle after which you will need to pick your way gingerly through very wet bog before the final ascent to the summit trig of Greenane.

The third peak on our hike, greenane is a bit of a legend fom my youth. My grandfather lived at the Cahir end of the Galtees and always wanted to walk over to lough Muskry, in the correy of Greenane. My grandmother would never let him go alone (very sensible) so I was parceled off with him. Unfortunately being about 10 my stamina was not up to the task and we never made it. I have since made the trip a couple of times including a somewhat insane scramble up a stream on the back wall of the correy. My grandfather and I made it to the lake on another occasion, coming up from the glen of Aherlow. Here is a shot of me sitting beside the triangulation point nursing a pair of blisters.

Walking along the Galtee ridge makes a change from just going up Galtymore and back, although the flat top of Greenane isn't very distinctive. We had planned to descend into Glengarra Wood, but had to skirt around it because the Garda were there investigating a dead body. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/39/comment/4340/
