With not much time on a Sunday, I had to climb Crohan West and Knockmeal. I started at a small turnoff where the East Munster Way meets the road at S115 104 G. The plan was to head just south of due west to the forest's edge, then take that around, but a fence impeded my progress. Not wanting to antagonize the landowner, I followed the trail further to where it meets the forest corner (the forest map on OSI 74 is rather accurate), but encountered another fence, which I climbed as it was at higher altitude and was probably commerical property. I followed the trail to its end at S101 105 H, then headed straight up to the peak. The heather is almost waist high for the first 100m or so, and it's not a fun trudge, but it thins out quickly and the ascent is rather easy. Nice views all around. Will post a picture after film is developed. Rest of the walk is described under Knockmeal. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/410/comment/1468/
