The first mountain I climbed was Knockmealdown, I have Joss Lynams "Best Irish Walks" to thank for that, spurred on by its location towering in my back window.But the one that has won my heart is Crohan West ,small but best of the knock me downs. A small effort from Liam Lynchs back right hand corner,up through the trees to open hillside then the way is evident via the decaying fence posts and you have Comeraghs, Galtys, Slievenamon to enjoy in the shade of the summit cairn.By the way if anyone is doing the challenge walk this year, let me know and I'll race you!
