County High Point 2018 - Leitrim
by doogleman  12 Feb 2020
Climbed 14-04-18 as part of 32 County High Point Challenge in aid of SLMRT.
This was the second of my challenge and a place I am familiar with as a Telecoms Engineer. This time however, I had to leave the vehicle at the access gate and walk up!
The access for most of the way is very straight forward, as you simply follow the RTE road until the point of turn-off to cross boggy ground to the SE Cairn. The route I took this particular day actually included going to the Sligo summit first, then navigating to the SE Cairn for the Leitrim CHP. In low visibility, it can be a bit disorientating, so if you wish you can use G7602 4711 B as a the closest point on the road to navigate to or from the Cairn.
The Cairn is a pile of stones and clearly visible from nearby.
Note that if you are using the "PeakHunter" App to log this, its location for the Cairn is off by about 150m to the North.
Views from this point are good into the Glencar valley from 0 to 180 degrees. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1054/comment/20751/
