Worthy of the climb.
by Harry Goodman  20 Jul 2011
Climbed this hill on 4 July 2011. I parked at C4804837194 where there was ample space for several cars. I crossed the R240 and then a small stream before heading up sharply NE to a broad flat moorland which I followed across before dropping down steeply, but not very far, to cross another stream. From there I went up a steep gully, past an out decaying tree and headed for the crest of the ridge . Before reaching the crest I came to an old walled stone enclosure and, shortly after, a raised ditch running NNW in the direction of Grinlieve Top. I followed it up and, when it became less distinct, continued on in the same direction to a fence where I turned right and followed it up the ridge to the small rounded top of the hill. This is a fine viewpoint with a substantial cairn, hollowed out to give shelter from the elements should needs dictate. Prominent due W were Slieve Snaght and its satellites of Slieve Main and Damph. Just left of these was the as yet "unmapped" lake on the OSI Sheet 3 (Edition 3). It reminded me of a walk some years ago when I was coming back from Slieve Snaght by way of Damph and became confused by a large lake ahead not shown on my map! From the top of Grinlieve, rather than return by way of ascent, I opted to follow the fence directly downhill. Near the bottom it became quite steep and I had to cross through a small patch of deep bracken to a fence which I crossed to a narrow but distinct track. I turned right along the track for a few metres and then turned left, keeping the hedge/bushes on my left, and went down through two fields to pick up a lane which forded a river and also had stepping stones, which I crossed and walked the short distance out to the R240 C4781038203. I turned left and walked just over 1km back to the start. In all an enjoyable walk of some 4km which I combined with walks to two other isolated tops on the same day. Anyone considering using my descent route for an up and down should be aware that there is no parking available at the entrance to the lane off the main road. the nearest point to park would be some 300m along the road in the direction of Moville.
