No.2 of 400m+ summits for me since I starting walking in Ireland. I wasn't aware of the parking area SE of the summit and began my walk at 8am from the Bloomfield Crossroads. I intended to join the Blackwater Way at the start and then map my way in a Southerly direction to the summit. Unfortunately, I lost the path for the Blackwater after only 15min of walking - perhaps just a badly maintained section of the trail which had become overgrown with all the recent growth lately. So I resolved to take the forest tracks and then road to quickfoot it toward Castleblagh to begin a more trodden path to the top. I took a standard easterly approach up the forest tracks to the summit and was met by wonderful views the the N and NE. Although I prefer the views from Seefin peak on the Ballyhoura's, this was particularly nice for the colours of the plants all around. Purples and yellows, which when the sun DID decide to show its face, shone in a beautiful, contrasting medley of colours. The wind was quickly in though, and with the threat of rain I began the decent in the direction of Knocknaskagh N Top. Since this was a 407m peak, I thought I'd make it my no.3 as I made my way back to the car. Relatively uneventful, I made the fatal mistake of following a faint path northwards of that peak along the treeline in the hopes of joining up with a marked forest track. It soon petered out into nothing and I took the decision to turn NW toward the path I knew was there just beyond a line of forest. Big mistake. It took a good 30min of forcing my way through undergrowth and brambles to finally meet up with the trail and continue again north. There are no straight routes northward toward Bloomfield Crossroads from this point, however, and the next hour and a half was made up of a frustrating east and west cutbacking, in a painfully slow progress toward the car. Arrived at the car at 1:30, tired but happy. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/702/comment/3267/
