End of the day job
by jimgraham  14 May 2010 Having recently walked the main Bluestacks ridge, starting at a point noted by others, I found myself with enough time to pick off CMN as well. Walked up Sli na Finne from the Reelan Valley, well marked but boggy long distance path to the west of the top, then picked up the ridge. Had to (carefully) cross one post and wire fence but that was the only obstacle.
The summit offered a good panorama of the main ridge climbed earlier in the day.
