On 10th August 2005, in what turned out to be a glorious sunny day, myself and Tom Milligan set out to traverse the Knockmealdowns in a linear trek from east to west and the route is 26 km with a total climb of 1600m. It proved to be an interesting day with great views to the Galtees, the Comeraghs and the plains to the north and south as well as the sea near Youghal. We had earlier left a car at the finish near Farbreaga at R 983 089 D and then started the trek at a point east of Crohan West. Starting south of Newcastle at S 115 105 E the East Munster Way provides a good and interesting access to the lower slopes of Crohan West. After 0.5 km as the waymarked route turns to the north west on a contour there is a track that leads directly uphill towards the summit. Further on there is a band of forest but there is a path which leads through an opening which heads directly for the summit. From there across heather and gorse the summit awaits. See Knockmeal for a continuation of the traverse. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/410/comment/1871/
