Dangerous Rebel Cave
Thanks for the advice and the accurate GPS reading for the Rebel Cave. We parked up at T08096 92775 and made a direct ascent of Mullacor, mainly along the forest tracks, this was all fine, even the stretch of open country after the forest, the only boggy patch was the summit itself. Nothing too untoward or unexpected from here to Lugduff, from where we took a pretty direct route towards the Rebel Cave. This was very easy going initially, but hit some very wet patches about half way their. With the GPS finding the cave was easy enough, to have stood on the ground of patriots of the past! Didn't see the MV badge, but I had removed my head torch from the bag earlier in the week! From here we made a direct descent through the rock and fern covered steep slopes, which involved some scrambling and a lot of care. For those wanting to make a direct approach on the cave, leave the road at T 07392 93507. A very enjoyable 10km walk , with a tasty pint in the lodge afterwards, excellent first experience of Glenmalure. They were also firing in the neighbouring Glen yesterday. Some bang out of the heavy artillery!
