The first of six.
by Harry Goodman  26 May 2012
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.
