by Harry Goodman  28 May 2012
I climbed Cope's Mt on 5 May 2012 as the sixth and final hill in a round of the Castlegal Mountain Group.. (For previous part of the route see my comments on Crockauns). When we set out we had intened to finish our round on Crockauns but once there, with Cope's Mt beckoning to us some 1.7k to the W, we quickly decided to take it onboard. From the top of Crockauns we went down W across a wet peat hagged col to G753410 C before starting to climb up a trackless heather, peat hagged and hummocky slope in search of the top about 1k further along G7439041447 D. This involved tackling numerous heights and hollows on the way over what was the toughest terrain we had to tackle on the day. Make no mistake, while this is not a "mountain" in the true sense being only 452m, it would nonetheless be a serious place to get lost in bad visibility being an expansive sprawling trackless plateau surrounded by a steep escarpments of sheer cliffs on it's N and S rims. In such conditions very careful navigation would be essential. The flat heathery top of Cope's Mt. is undistinguised and the high point is unmarked. Indeed the OSi Sheet 16 names a lesser top Pt. 395 just over 1k further W as Cope's Mt.,which I understand, does have a summit cairn. From the top we headed generally SE, helped at times by fences leading in that general direction, to G7573640444 E from where we made our way down a steep grassy slope to the road below where a left turn and a short walk brought us back to the start point of our round G7626940300 F. In all our days walk covered six mv listed tops, Keelogyboy Mt., Keelogyboy Mt. SW Top, Keelogyboy Mt. NE Top, Hangman's Hill, Crockauns and Cope's Mt. and was 13.5k in length. A fine day out in an area frequently passed by on the way from Enniskillen to Sligo but not previously visited. Highly recommended but choose weather when good visability is expected and the scenery can be enjoyed.. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/612/comment/6828/
