simon3: Track 2078 in area near Carrick Mountain, Dublin/Wicklow (Ireland)
Exploratory route for Carrick Mtn from the SW

Places: Start at T21899 93543, Carrick Mountain, end at Start

This track was made in search of a quick way up Carrick Mtn, a summit that has caused considerable grief to previous people exploring it.

The immediate area of the summit is a quartzite ridge stretching approximately SW-NE. All around this are untracked trees, often the black barked Lodgepole Pine (Pinus Contorta). To the SW where we attempted to walk on the way up, many of these trees which in that area are Lodgepoles have fallen over, creating very difficult walking. If you look at the air photo layer you can see three types of tree in descending order of walkability, light green: larch, middle green: Sitka Spruce and dark green Lodgepole Pine. Our route exited the summit slightly north and west where the going through the trees was much easier.

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 1h 21m + 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.
