Short Summary created by jackill,  7 Nov 2010
Park in a layby at a bad bend in the road at V79100 30650 A, room for 3 cars. Walk directly uphill, keeping near the crest as its less up and downs.You will still have to zig-zag it upwards across shelves of rock and ledges of bog to the summit cairn Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/942/comment/5701/
 
Most extensive views of the Mizen Peninsula.

Started the climb of Knocknamadree from the highest part of the road, beside a red holiday house at V798304 B. There is a space for most of one car on the opposite side of the road from the house on the southern side. The best route is to stay on the ridge away from the inviting grassy vistas that are in fact very spongy, even after a decent summer. I suspect the rain runs off the rock and collects in these culverts and are probably atrocious in winter. There is a small lake on the ascent which has had a causeway built across it to make two lakes. There is a reasonably large cairn at the summit and the views in all directions are superb, possibly the best of any of the Mizen peaks, and that is saying something. Return by the same way. Another possible (steeper) route would be from the road that skirts the mountain on its northern flank. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/942/comment/17611/

See how much she loves you, climb Knocknamaddree!

I am forever grateful to my long suffering wife.
She does not enjoy hillwalking and yet has tolerated my early departures to knockwhatsitsname near ballyhellifIknow for many years now.
Last weekend though she surpassed herself. We were away for a romantic weekend in west Cork and on Saturday we spent a glorious day walking the roads of Clear Island then, on the way home on Sunday, she insisted I knock off the summits nearby on the basis that it would need a 2.5 hour drive on my part to get back to the end of the Mizen peninsula.
Knocknamaddree then was climbed from the road at V79100 30650, zig-zag it upwards across shelves of rock and ledges of bog to the summit cairn. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/942/comment/5845/
