Our closest climb
by paddyobpc  25 Jan 2017
Just 10 to 15 minutes outside Kildorrery is Kilcruig also known as Carrigeenamronety. We climb this mountain quite often and both my children Rachel and Dillon walk to the trig with me many times during the year and really enjoy writing in the diary at the top. Although a fairly short walk, because of the numerous visits, this mountain is definitely responsible for keeping them fit and resulting in them being able to take on the challenge of pretty much any other mountain in the country. Both of them would have first walked to the top of Carrigeenamronety while still only 3 years of age.
Starting at R70274 16868 A watch for the brown Castlegale Hillfort sign, take the gentle route through the forestry road as described by jackill or the more difficult (great training for the legs) but quicker route described by Acorn. We completed the quicker route on New Years Day 2017 and were back at the car in less than an hour after spending about 20 minutes at the top. My phone app measured a height gain of 166m for this route and the distance up and back was 2.8Km.
Alternatively for a longer walk, park in Darragh and follow the Darragh-hills-loops (http://www.discoverireland.ie/Activities-Adventure/darragh-hills-loop/80873) which includes Castle Gale (Carrighenry) and Kilcruig (Carrigeenamronety).
For such a short walk you will enjoy brilliant views and on top of both mountains why not put your name in the diary to record your visit.
Check out where this early mountain training took Dillon; at 9 years old he had climbed the County High Points of all 32 Counties of Ireland. Check out Dillon’s website at https://dillons32chpchallenge.github.io/progress/index.html Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/825/comment/18834/
