A short and quick alternative
by Harry Goodman  30 Sep 2010
On Sat. 25 September 2010 having already walked a 15 k route earlier in the afternoon (Tullybrack) and wanting to climb Belmore Mt as the last top on my Fermanagh S Tyrone mv list I was somewhat discouraged to read madfrankies "not a quickie" comment that the route to the top of this hill was 11k and would take at least 2.5 hours of walking. As it was late afternoon I was undecided what to do sitting in my car at three5four0's suggested starting point. Looking at the map I noted what might be another and perhaps nearer access road some 2.5k NE along at H121438 A and decided to go and have a look. There was a bus shelter at the road junction and to my surprise I was able to drive up this road for some 1.3k to a gate across the road at H1266342896 B where I was able to park off road, just opposite a farm entrance. As there was no one at the farm I was not able to ask about access but as this was a road leading up into the forest I did not consider it would be a problem and decided to proceed with my walk. Once across the gate I followed the road up for about 250 metres to just before a stout metal forestry gate where I turned right H1288842853 C on to a rough stony track which wound up the hillside to a fairly level crest and an area of extensive moorland. On reaching an old tin shed and a couple of abandoned cars (see photo) at H1281342327 D I turned off the track to the left and struck out SE across the moorland in the direction of the still unseen summit. I found the going very heavy over large tussocky clumps of grass and heather making for slower progress than I would have liked. Near the trig pillar I passed the old wireless mast mentioned by three5four0 in his comments. The walk out over the moorland to the top at H 1385641767 E was just over 1k and some 2.2k from my starting point. Madfrankies photo and description of the views indicate what is to be expected on a visit to this hill. While I note his view that it may only attract the committed summiteer this alternative and much shorter route to the top, in both time and distance, might facilitate someone wishing to do several walks in the area on the same day . I returned by way of ascent a total distance of 4.4k (2k of which was heavy going) and completed in just over an hour. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/843/comment/6119/
