dr_banuska on Clermont, 2009

Clermont was the second summit in my 5 peak hike beginning at Anglesey and ending at Carnavaddy (see Anglesey entry for start point info). From the summit of Anglesey, Clermont appears as a boggy mound off to your right (really south west), requiring a brief detour if your aim is Clermont Cairn with its prominent masts . Fortunately a fence can be followed down, around and up to the featureless summit of Clermont. If you look at the map, it does seem like this fence follows the line of the border here, where a small section of Co. Armagh containing Clontygora Wood juts conspicuously into Co. Louth. The terrain is quite tough going on the ascent and I walked alongside the old wall that eflanaga mentions, itself running parallel to the fence as I recall. The summit appears to be a little to the left (west) of the top of the wall, somewhere amidst the heavy undergrowth. The views here are very impressive: I found this to be one of the best vantage points to appreciate the Ring of Gullion. There is also a view down to The M1 Motorway with Dundalk beyond it; the imposing Crowne Plaza Hotel and Dundalk IT wind turbine could be made out.
