Forget the wellies

As a warm up for Scavvy 11, did a peak bagging walk taking in Lough Mohra, Knockanaffrin (K) and Knocksheegowna (KS). Parked at S28530 17969 C beside the walking map sign - the walks recommended are way marked but not to optimize an ascent/descent of the two peaks. I had copied a satellite image from Bing Maps as it is a really good up to date image and used that to pick the best forest road. Walked up to the lough and looked with concern at the cloud, which had been resting at about 650m, now lowered itself halfway down the face of K. Climbed up to the col above the lake and headed south into a rising wind as a squall hit. Worked in the rain-filled gloom up to the top where there is a subtle cairn moulded into the outcrop. The change in direction of the ridge (compass!) confirmed this as the top, as well as a lower crag about 100m away. Descended back northwards into the col, just as the cloud lifted and revealed KS. Looking back, I could now see K clearly - typical. Easy walk up KS on a faint track to top, the trig point and the adjacent spot height, both appear higher from each other. Descended directly down the steep slope to the northeast, more difficult as I was trying wellies again (as a result of the interview with Brian Ringland on this site) but perhaps Dunlop not as good as Nora. Anyway they slipped more than my usual boots so I won't repeat the experiment. Continued down across clearfell as I wasn't in the mood for long loops. Completed in 3 hours, very nice walk, good views in all directions - thanks to Gerrym - Track 2338 - for inspiration. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/74/comment/17657/
