Excellent horseshoe walk in the southern Bluestacks
by garrettd  24 Aug 2014
Carnaween was the last of four peaks on a horseshoe walk that started on the other side of the forested ridge to the east at G893885 A. Most ascents appear to be made from the NW side using the Bluestack Way with some erosion around the summit leading from that direction. The views from the top are superb, particularly to the south and west where Benbulbin and the masted Truskmore stand out. The metal box containing a visitor book is a nice addition that I have not encountered anywhere else in Ireland and despite the damp conditions that must prevail much of the time, the book is in decent condition with a variety of pens supplied. My eastward decent was relatively straightforward with just one slight adjustment required to avoid a sheer precipice.

I crossed the Eany-Beg Water at approximately G887891 B and made the gentle climb over the semi-forested 350m peak back to the car. The estimated 12km walk took exactly 4 hours in ground conditions that were frequently challenging on account of surface water. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/409/comment/17638/
