TRY THE GYES HERE
Alex 92, pleased you are drinking and pursuing women. As independent endeavours they are both worthy. Just a word of caution though: be careful not to mix the two or the girning you refer to later in your post will be but a drop in the bucket. “Dad, are we there yet?”
Here are a couple of suggestions for venues to engage in both. First up, just stay away from all the usual haunts: Ice House on the Glen River; Commedagh Wood; head of the Annalong Wood; Trassey foot of Meelmore. Issue here is these are too easily accessed by the scummies. So you are in a cleft stick: you want easy access but no scum buckets.
Try the following: a few minutes into Commedagh via the fire chute and stile West of the Glen River – over the first main rise find a grassy stretch with fab views down to Newcastle. Or a few mins up the track from Silent Valley Road to above the Buttresses beneath Pigeon Rock – level with good views of the tops to Binnian. Or beneath Chimneyrock from the Midpace burn, crossing and ascending at the first opportunity after a new stile and fence – ie avoid ascending before this or Farmer Giles will chastise you – wonderful views out to sea. A good start for girners. Let us know what you think.

Slieveboy: Default hill
scannerman a day ago.
I've forgotten how many times I've gone up this hill, must be over 50. I live relatively close so its the easy option when larger 'expeditions' are a non starter. It has a very decent balcony walk...

Maulin: Misty morning

Just sometimes and just for a short while a damp forest can show a misty fairy side. And so it was one January day after a heavy raincloud had passed and the sun had magicked this sprite into the ...

The famous side of Slieve Beg is the NE, gashed by the Devils Coachroad. However the SE side also has its drama.Taken on a frosty slippy day from Cove.

Colin Murphy 4 days ago.
On my approach to the summit I came across a large field of hundreds of these rather striking formations, which I think are are moss-covered boulders, but which looked like giant green ant-hills o...

My final Vandeleur-Lynam! Unfortunately No. 273 wasn't the most distinctive summit (when I came off Mangerton I couldn't even pick it out on the landscape) , but the views from the top are tremend...

Dromderalough NE Top: Long route from the south.
Collaborative entry Last edit by: Colin Murphy 4 days ago.
Not normally done in isolation, this top usually forms part of a walk involving Dromderalough itself or Mangerton. One approach is from the north, which has the advantage of a gently rising track ...
