majestic meanderings from Glenade
by gerrym  5 May 2010
Keeloges provides a striking counterpart to the vertical escarpments falling from Tievebaun and Truskmore across the floor of Glenade valley - a worthy rival to the more famous and travelled Glencar. It has a majestic presence from below - the rocky buttresses fitting like a well worn crown above steep scree spattered slopes.

The approach is as easy as could be, parking next to St Michaels church (803503) which has loads of parking! A short walk south along the R280 brings a lane with an adjacent iron gate, cross the gate into the field and follow the path taken by tractors uphill. This leads easily uphill towards the towering slopes and cliffs ahead. A new fenceline and ditch have to be negotiated as head for a significant gully and landslip which has thrown a trail of debris far down the mountainside.

To the right of this gully a lush green track switches back and forth up the steep hillside, making surprisingly light work of the climb - this was late in the evening with fading light and a pack with camping gear. Looking along the slope aspect brought home just how steep it was and the clatter of falling stones as sheep crossed areas of scree confirmed my sight. As i neared the crest, between towers of rock on either side, a pair of ravens hovered not far overhead screeching at my presence in thier domain. The lights atop Truskmore casting an eerie glow as mist passed. On level ground the headtorch came out and i found my way to Lough Keeloges - the strong northerly wind pushing the water ashore. Tent pitched and hot food consumed a fairly comfortable night ensued, wind and the odd skiff of rain present on my hourly wake up.

Come morning a short hop and skip brought the prominent top, which provided a stunning vista across Glenade to the ice gouged sides of the valley and the heights of Truskmore and Tievebaun. My eyes roamed over the length of Donegal Bay from the heights of Slieve League to the Bluestacks, the beach at Bundoran and part of Lough Melvin. To the south were the crazily jumbled line of the Castegal Hills and the higher hills of Briefne culminating with Cuilcaigh.

A beautiful hill, imposing, dramatic and inspiring from below. From atop the views just add to the experience making this a relatively modest price to paid for the riches it pays out. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/611/comment/4683/
