Easily Reached From Knocknapeasta
by Aidy  17 Jul 2015
This was our fourth summit of the day, all over 900m on a traverse of the Eastern Reeks starting with Cruach Mhor, and the easiest of the day so far. There had been steep climbs and scrambling, with some dangerous stages in the earlier part of the walk, particularly in the bad weather we'd had. Now however, it was a short walk up a gentle incline to Maolan Bui from Knocknapeasta. There were no sheer drops to our sides either, and we were glad of the chance for a more relaxed stretch.
