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.
