A great waste of featureless ground
by simon3  3 Apr 2012
Richard Mersey in "The Hills of Cork & Kerry" mentions climbing Carrigwadra from the Loo Valley to the south, starting presumably somewhere near W084813 C on the R569. On p91 he says "... And so I struck over Carrigawadra. The lower slopes here are exceedingly rocky and vegetated. Soon I gained a great waste of featureless ground, with many a rocky shoulder between me and Crohane."
He made it to Crohane and back to the road in 3 hours which is good going. It took us (with me being the slower) around 53 minutes to go just from Carrigawadra to Crohane.
The picture shows some of the rough confusing ground with multiple tilts and twists to get to the rock of the dog. The skyline mast is Mullaghanish TV transmitter. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/718/comment/6748/
