Punching Above Its Weight
by Aidy  15 Sep 2013
Climbed yesterday afternoon having approached from Castlederg on the Tullycar Road. Parked on a laybay on the right side of the road as soon as the trees ended on the right hand side leaving Killeter Forest. There would be shorter routes, also on this South side of the hill, but its a short ascent anyway, and a small hill rising from the road gives great views of the entire hill for picking out a route.

From here I set off on a vaguely North West direction. With no clear path, the ground was difficult enough for walking, with much weaving round boggy pools, and a lot of mini peaks and troughs. However, there is not much distance to cover, and there were plenty of excuses to stop for photos as new views constantly revealed themselves with altitude.

There is a cairn and a small lough at the summit, with much better views than its height would suggest. To the North is the Bluestacks, to the west Donegal Town, and beyond to Slieve League, Southwest to the Dartry Mountains and even North Mayo, and South over loughs and forests to Fermanagh.

Well worth it for the views if you're in the area with a short window of opportunity: I was up and down in two hours with many pauses for photography. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/664/comment/15179/
