madfrankie on Common Mountain, 2005

Started from the lay-by near the top of the Glengesh Pass. Walked south past the forestry before squelching SE across boggy moorland. A messy but easy ascent to the skyline brings you to a fence which can be followed for a distance. Gradient steepens slightly before you arrive at the summit, marked with a concrete-filled plastic pipe atop a peaty knoll.
Good views include down to Ardara and Loughros More Bay, and northwest to Meenacurrin / Slievetooey. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/453/comment/1931/
