Looking for a 2014 idea.
Hi, I've returned to Mountain views as I'm starting to get out abit again. I'm looking for idea's from y'all for 2014 where I want to do one Mountain climb /walk each month of 2014. To some reading this your probably thinking...he's not looking for much of a challenge but with work, kids, married etc etc I'm setting something I can achieve and it would be great to look forward to and plan such in advance. I'm mid 30's, fit and know what it takes and know the concerns and dangers so not a total novice. So this is what I'm looking for........ need one mountain each month, for the months that are more likely to produce the bad weather (Jan Feb March etc) I need a mountain that's safer to climb and can change the mountain to suit the weather and the availability. I may even fit in two in one month so looking for 12 anyway but 13 or 14 would be great to get too. I don't want a climb that I'll be using pick axes and all that but something that's challenging and at the end of the year I can say... that was great!. I haven't done Carrigtwohill yet but would be good to get that in. The 12 peaks would come to mind but if someone could advice what peak on what month that would be brilliant. Looking forward to your replies, thanks ! Kevin.

Lackakeely: An easy bag after Mweelrea
magnumpig 9 hours ago.
Mweelrea is a sweaty old climb (for me anyways) and if, like me, you feel that climbing it deserves bagging more than one peak, you should visit Lackaleely. Basically it's a small rise overlooking...

As mentioned by Bunsen7, the entrance to the windfarm is the best way to access this hill. Note that there are signs saying no unauthorized access but isn't that always the way. I did come across ...

No excuse not to come over here for a peek if you are at Truskmore, so that's what we did and it's worth it for the extra view.
