After the traverse of all the rough & boggy ground from Shanlieve to Slievemeel, the forestry track up to the Fallow came as light relief. The ground after the track was something else, csd has been to kind in his description. There appears to be some sort of drainage channels, perhaps for the trees, long gone peat cuttings or just an unusual amount of bog holes, which are now covered by various types of vegetation & lots of tussocks. These range from some knee deep to thigh deep. The summit itself appears to be on a slight spur of the summit ring contour. The Descent, unlike the film, did not have nocturnal flesh eating trolls running about the place, but there was plenty of bog holes for them to hide out in, in fact it was worse than the summit area. it was with relief i reached the firmer slopes of Slievemartin (after another fence). All in all, this summit is only suitable for the hard pressed DoE leader who has some disrespectful charges with him, where the smallest and rudest of them may disappear for ever here. So one for the fell runners as well then. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/582/comment/3240/
