HimiWack on Cnoc an Bhráca, 2009
by HimiWack  12 Jul 2009
Climbed Cnoc an Bhraca on 3.Jun 2009. It was a very hot and dry day on the end of a dry waether stage. Started at Kate Kearney´s Cottage at 10:00. It is an easy and fast ascent from Gap of Dunloe via Turf Path to the elevated bog plain around Strickeen Hill. Here the path ends and i passed Strickeen Hill on left, crossing the bog field and heading for the path on the foot of Cnoc an Bhraca. The bog field was easy to walk because of the dryness, i think in a wet time it will be much catchier. I arrived on summit after 2,5 hrs walk. Here are great views to the Reeks, the Black Valley and Purple Mountain. Descending via Cnoc na dTarbh and Drishana, and from here following a fence i reached the Black Valley road approximately 800m southwest of Madman´s Seat. Back through the Gap of Dunloe. The whole walk takes around 6 hrs. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/87/comment/3914/
