simon3: Track 2005 in area near Gearhane, Slieve Mish (Ireland)
Six Slieve Mishes from the north side.
Length: 15.8km, Creator time taken: 8h25m, Ascent: 1153m,
Descent: 1162m

Places: Start at Q74238 10740, Gearhane, Caherconree, Baurtregaum, Baurtregaum NW Top, Baurtregaum NE Top, Baurtregaum Far NE Top, end at Start
Logged as completed by 1
This trip takes in much of the north side starting from a traditional parking spot as shown.
The pull up Gearhane is hard work. It gives good views into the Derrymore valley which at a later stage you will be on the other side of, when you reach Baurtregaum NW.
Part of the ridge from Caherconree eastwards is fairly narrow and, while exhilarating, could be difficult in high winds.
From Bautregaum NE the route goes via a ridge overlooking the huge Curraheen valley, one of the longest glacial valleys in Ireland and also one of the least known.
From Baurtregaum Far NE go down the untracked and heathery east side of the Derryquay river to pick up the EW track. This track as of 2005 anyway, was very rough.

Your time to complete will depend on your speed plus break time and your mode of transport. For walkers: Naismith's rule, a rough and often inaccurate estimate, suggests a time of 5h 5m + time stopped for breaks
Note: It is up to you to ensure that your route is appropriate for you and your party to follow bearing in mind all factors such as safety, weather conditions, experience and access permission.
