A little gem of a hill
by Harry Goodman  4 Jun 2010
We approached Keeloges from the SE as the final hill in a round (Sat 22 May 2010) that had also included Arroo Mt, Aganny Top and Aghalateeve. (See also my comments on each of the other hills.) From Aghalateeve we dropped down NW to cross a stream, and then up to Pt 442 G8140049725 H, passing across flat marshy ground with a number of small fenced in boggy areas. Pt 442 is a rocky promontory just S and above beautiful Lough Keeloges nestling in a hallow below the tiny summit of Keeloges. Our route took us down to the Lough and then around and along its W side, on a good stoney surface, for the short and easy climb up to the top G8126550154 and a superb viewpoint. This final hill of the day proved to be one of great character, with suberb views in whatever direction we choose to look. Close at hand to the W, or so it seemed, were the high hills of the Dartry Range, Tievebaun and Truskmore, while N beyond Bundoran across Donegal Bay was Slieve League and the long ridge of the Bluestacks. E across the valley was Arroo Mt our first top of the day and SW was the bumpy ridge of the Castegal Range across Glencar. This is a top on which to sit and while away a bit of time simply soaking up the atmosphere and scenic delights all around. We did just that. When there we met another walker who told us he was intending to descend by the zig zags on the steep escarpment just below and to the W of Lough Keeloges. Indeed from where we were sitting we could clearly see his intended path zig zaging down the slope. However as this route would have added an extra 2k of roadwalking back to the car we opted to continue with the planned route down. We descended by following the edge of the escarpment down NNE then up and over a subsidiary top before dropping down steeply and carefully away from the precipitous edge to meet a well constructed farm track G8190050600, which we followed down for some 2.8k to the road and the sting in this "tale". On the way down, near the road there were a number of houses and, while we could hear voices from time to time we did not meet up with any of the residents. At the road was a notice indicating that the track we did come down was a " Private Road- No Entry". At the road we turned right and had a walk of about !k back to the start of our round G8048152522 I. For anyone wishing to follow our round or to use the farm track for access it would be prudent to seek permission at one of the houses near the start of the track. More wisely I would suggest that you use the access to or from the hill by way of the zig jag path mentioned to us by the walker we met on the top and also identified by gerrym in his post of 5 May 2010 starting or finishing at St Michaels Church in Glenade G8030050300. In total our round of the four tops (Arroo Mt, Aganny Top, Aghalateeve and Keeloges) was just under 18k and a memorable and rewarding day in the hills. Without doubt this is a hill well worth climbing in its own right. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/611/comment/5848/
