wicklore on Spinans Hill SE Top, 2008
by wicklore  10 Oct 2008
Wary of csd’s forest ordeal on Spinian, today I sought and found an easy approach to Spinian which I did after tackling Spinian SE Top.
Initially I went looking for Simon3's starting point for Spinian SE Top. Having recently suffered the curse of a forest crawl and gorse field obstacle course I was anxious to have an easy walk on this wet and cloudy day. I found a new parking spot just off the road at S924 907 A. I asked at an intercom in the gate across the road and the lady said it was ok to park there. A track led north and almost immediately I reached the edge of the forest which can be seen in Padodes photo of Spinian SE Top taken from Keadeen-I was at the corner of the long finger of forest stretching to the left. Keeping the forest on my left I crossed fences and fields and soon came to the summit. The bad weather meant visibility was down to a couple of hundred feet so I can't comment on the wonderful views I know must be available from up there. I would urge caution when climbing the large stone wall enclosing the summit in wet weather as it was quite slippy. I got a start when I saw what looked like a large bull sitting near the summit (see photo) but on closer (careful) inspection it turned out to be a large boulder! Leaving the summit I considered csd’s comments on the awkward route over to Spinian which he had done in reverse. I decided to explore the possibility of a direct route through the forest. I followed a fence west from the summit until it reached the trees. The fence continued into the trees with a track beside it and I followed it until the track ran out. The forestry grew denser and the fence disappeared into the murky darkness. In the interest of aiding future walkers I valiantly plunged in.
To my surprise and delight following this fence was easy and soon brought me across the ‘finger’ of forest to the fields on the other side. I emerged from the dense forest at a hut. To return to the parking spot from here simply turn left, keep the forest on your left and reach your car in a few minutes. Padodes’ photo from Keadeen makes it possible to visualize all of this. I would recommend this as a return route if parking where I did as it was easier than climbing across many barbed wire fences on the way up. Note-the spread of forestry on Spinian is much more extensive than shown on the OS map. From the hut I continued on to find the main Spinian summit. (See Spinian for the next section.)
