wicklore on Spinans Hill, 2008

I climbed Spinian after Spinian SE Top. For those doing the same and following my route they would have arrived at a hut beside a forest. (see Spinian SE Top) To reach this hut directly without climbing SE Top simply park off the road at the gate and track at S924 907 D. Head through the gate and head north on the track. The track reaches a forest. Stay on the track and keep the forest on your right. After 10 minutes of hugging the forest you will reach the aforementioned hut and a fence blocking your path. (ignore an earlier roofed structure on the track with no sides) The forest turns west at the hut, so head west alongside the forest, with the trees on your right. A few minutes brought me to a gate at the end of the forest. I went through the gate and a few minutes north uphill along a track brought me over a fence to the broad summit area. In the poor visibility I continued north until I found the fence at the summit recorded by csd. From the car I would reckon it’s a 25 minute walk to the summit. I could see nothing whatsoever due to the weather but was happy to have found an easy route up. I can empathize with csd and all those who have been forced to crawl and eat pine needles in their quest to find routes up our hills. The compass brought me back through the cloud to the track and I followed the forest down to my car. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/787/comment/3371/
