So rough I climbed it twice
by eamonoc  3 Jul 2014
Climbed on Tue 1/7/2014.Looking for shortest route to top, I started at R 79274 64735 A at forest entrance, room here for many cars, followed forest track uphill ignored first left, this leads to an abandoned farmhouse. Continued on track to a dead end, just before the track ended I took a sharp left up a rough forest ride for about 100mts this led to open hill side and thigh deep heathery slopes. To save the legs I was able to use and old deep dyke at the forest edge R78983 64375 B this led uphill to the right from here. this was a god send as I was able to negotiate my way up through it beside the forest having only to climb out twice into the torturous heather. The dyke led to within about 150mts of the top, then it was out into the heather still thigh deep in places and very difficult to walk in. The top of Bleanbeg is heather covered with a few small trees hereabouts great views all around with Boolatin and Keeper Hill the most dominant features to be seen. To the west of the top I spotted freshly cut turf so there might be an easier alternative to my route, Headed back down the upward route to the forest track where I discovered I had lost my sunglasses, so I turned around and headed all the way back up again dyke crawling heather bashing my way to the top but to no avail. So Mt Viewers if anyone climbs Bleanbeg this way the sunglasses are mine! Linkback:
