After a short diversion to Lacknafrankee, I set out from the Gap car park S276 128 C to complete the route Pat and I had attempted last February the 11th. We had started in the evening and walked from the car park to the Coum Iarthar Loughs, using head torches, to camp for the night.
We picked one of the roughest nights of the year and Pat ended up with a swimming pool in his tent at about 4 am and had to share my tent until dawn. We were so fed up in the morning we just retraced our steps and ran for home.
Any way , the walk, from the gap ignore the white posts and skirt around the base of Carrignagower , try to work your way up to a height of approx 525 mtrs. This will bring you on to a track that you can follow all the way around to the back of the corrie overlooking the largest of the lakes. Start up the side of the corrie heading towards the cairn marked on the map. From the cairn turn around and its a short , steep slope to gain the Comeragh Plateau at 740 mtrs. Head across the plateau for point 750 mtrs and descend towards the Spilloge loughs and back across the bog to join the track at S283 124 D. The photo shows the Loughs with Carrignagower, the Knockanaffrin ridge and in the distance, Slievenamon. 4.5 hrs and 11.5 kms Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/62/comment/1690/
