I wanted to get this summit out of the way and as the road through the Glendine Gap was covered in ice the last time i tried, this time i decided to track it from the Camross side. On the morning of the 28th January i parked the car at S241967 B and made my way to the summit from here. The views behind me towards East were fabulous on the way up and as it was a perfect day the views from the summit were also splendid. It takes about 50 mins to reach the summit from this side but its an enjoyable walk. There's a farm track for about a third of the way but after this the ground becomes very heavy as you're walking across bog. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/399/comment/3550/
