Short Summary created by simon3,  29 Jun 2010
The west and south west sides of Keelogyboy Mtn have some interesting cliffs however the summit area itself is the least interesting of the Keelogyboys, being covered in peat hags.
The summit can be accessed from the public road to the west at G7567 4001 A. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/665/comment/5424/

The first of six.

I climbed this hill on 5 May 2012 as the first top in a round of six mv listed hills. To reach the start of our walk we left the N56 from Sligo to Manorhamilton at G721395 B and followed a minor road E for some 4.5k to G7626940300 C where there was room to park to the side of the road. We initially walked E then SE for some 400m to the end of the road by which time it had become an unsurfaced gravel track. Keeping left at a fork we made our way SE passing an old ruined farm on our right before crossing a stream. Keeping the stream on our left we made for the dip between Keelogyboy NE Top and Keelogyboy Mt. Our line of approach more or less followed the County boundary between Sligo/Leitrm as marked on OSi Sheet 16. On our way up we noted a good gravel track off to our left which appeared to head in our required direction. While in general this was the case, the track was intermittent, ending and restarting on a number of occasions, as we followed it up S to gain the col at G774 392 D just N of Stramore Lough. From here we climbed SW steeply up the untracked hillside to the flat topped, peat hagged summit, area. There were no distinguishing features to indicate just where the top lay apart from the MR for Pt 438 G771391 E. This said for relatively little effort the climb rewarded us with a fine viewpoint from which to appreciate this small but imposing cluster of hills that make up the Castlegal Range. From the top we headed SW for Keelogyboy SW Top. As our round developed and we became more familiar with the terrain, a variety of routes presented themselves for climbing these hills singularly or as a group.

Picture: Cairn on Keelogyboy
A cairn of sorts.
by paddyhillsbagger  3 Jun 2013
Keelogyboys top is uninspiring bog and peat hags as other walkers have commented. I did come across this curious cairn in the SW corner of the mountain on-route to the SW Top. It's around G770 388 F on top of the cliffs pictured in the short summary. Truskmores masts are just visible in the background. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/665/comment/15006/

Just visited the south face at about 2.30pm on 22/12/10 , approached from northern slopes , long hard walk in deep snow. Hard to judge extent of bog on top so didnt hang around.
ill never leave without gaiters again ! excellent views to south , and also of truskmore to north . worth the effort. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/665/comment/6179/
