The only previous time I had climbed Slievenahanaghan was many years ago when there was only 1 wind turbine on the hill. Nowadays as Harry Goodman notes there are an incredible 18 of the things. I wanted more of a challenge than walking round the wind farm access road so I climbed from the hill's western side. I drove up the Altnahinch road from Ballura and parked at the gate for the access road to what was the original turbine on Slevenahanaghan (104230 B). Staying off the gravel track I proceeded up towards the large flat summit area. Hard enough going on the ascent with the usual floating bog, hidden drainage ditches etc to look out for. At the 418m summit there is no obvious mark such as a cairn, although one of the turbines is very close to the highest point. Views aren't brilliant due to Slievenahanaghan being bounded on three sides by higher mountains - Slieveanorra, Trostan and Skerry Hill. There is a good view to the west over the wind farm on Long Mountain and towards the Sperrins and also to the north-east overlooking Altnahinch dam with the vast Slieveanorra forest behind. I walked around on top for a while before descending by the same route - a pleasant enough stroll but not the most exciting hill I've ever climbed. Still another one ticked off anyway. Total trip - about 45 minutes. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/741/comment/4211/
