A worthwhile climb
by Harry Goodman  9 Jul 2011
As Knockmore was the last remaining hill that I had not, as yet, climbed on Achill I decided to do so on Mon. 20 June 2011. As I had read wicklore's post of his climb starting from the south I thought I would take a look at a climb from the north thus giving readers an opportunity for an end to end walk, if transport allowed. We started from F6965000800 D on the road which goes along the NW flank of the hill and where there was adequate space to pull in off road. The start of the climb was SE up acrosss fairly rough ground to gain the ridge at F6985000500 E before we turned SSW up a long slope of some 200 metres to reach the the flatish top of the hill but with the high point still some 600 metres along. As wicklore has pointed out there is a small pile of stones centered in a broad flat area with higher peat hags on either side to the E and W. Clearly this does not mark the top. In my estimation the "high point" rests along the E rim of the peat hags. Someone (wicklore?) has placed a few stones along this edge that could well be the high point but no doubt others will adjudge some other tuft of grass as higher! One thing is sure, a short walk around the rim of the hags will undoubtedly cover the high point. of the hill. The view down S and SE across the subsidiary tops of the hill gave us a fine perspective of nearby Tievereivagh, climbed earlier in the day, and out across Clew Bay to Clare Island, with it's highpoint (also called Knockmore). Beyond we could see sun light Croagh Patrick and majestic Mweelrea the highest mountain in Connaght. Nearer at hand W were Menawn, Achill Head, and the tops of Croaghaun and Slievemore. To the east were nearby Corran Hill and Knockletragh and beyond the distant Nephin Beg Range. Apart from the initial climb up to the ridge the ground underfoot was good. Returning by our upward route we were up and down within one and a half hours. With two cars available a comination of this route with that described by wicklore would, in my view make an excellent end to end walk and add variety to an up and down route.
