Short Summary created by wicklore  2 May 2011
Carrigroe is situated midway along the ridge that extends south from Blackstairs Mountain, between Carrigalachan and Bran Scultair. It is unlikely to be climbed on its own, and will probably merely be a waypoint for those traversing the ridge. A wide track like a white scar runs along the crest of the ridge, probably created by machinery for access to the forests on the eastern slopes.

A Coillte forest road begins at S758364 A. The barrier is usually open leaving the option to drive further into the forest. At S784393 B there is a track junction, with a track heading north for 1km directly to the summit of Bran Scultair. From the curious summit of Bran Scultair (a trig pillar perched atop a rocky tor), follow the ridge crest track 1.5kms north to the unremarkable summit of Carrigroe. Any one of a number of track-side stones could mark the high point. There are good views west to Brandon Hill and the plains of Carlow/Kilkenny Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/471/comment/5230/

We approached Carrigroe from the north, after tackling Carrigalachan. Despite the extra 32 metres in elevation, the views over to Bran Scultair and Carrigalachan aren't quite as good as those from Carrigalachan. It's worth the modest investment required to get up, and makes a handy waypoint on a ridge walk down to Bran Scultair. Pic shows the view of Carrigroe (L) and Bran Scultair (R) taken from Carrigalachan. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/471/comment/2860/

After reaching the summit, I elected to head back to the car rather than continue along the ridge to Bran Scultair. As you can see from the photo, there's some newish planting to push through, but it's less than 100 metres of shoving through the spruce so it's not so bad. Sheet 68 appears to be accurate in its depiction of the tracks in the forest. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/471/comment/2861/

From Bran Scultair, I headed along the rough path to the top of Carrigroe, which barely deserves its status as a seperate peak. Nonetheless , the views to the west are constantly superb Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/471/comment/3082/
