As I’m an unashamed summit collector at this stage the appearance of Keale Mountain onto my local 100 list meant it was going to receive a fairly quick visit, being so close to home. To access it you simply turn left at the square in Kilfinane town towards Ballyorgan, this crossroads is directly opposite the Ballyhoura Failte offices. Proceed to the next crossroads ( A “Y “ fork) and turn left, located at R675218 C. Immediately after turning watch out for a single lane tarmac road on the left which rises steeply upwards. Take this road and continue on for some distance until you meet the Ballyhoura way at a forest barrier on your right,R692207 D. Parking here for 2, possibly 3 vehicles with care.
To reach the summit continue straight up the track. This soon gives way to mature forest which is being felled at the moment. Keep going until you meet a forest road coming from your right. Turn left and then sharp right with good views over to Slieve Reagh, Féar Breagach, the Galtees on your left. Continue until you meet an obvious turning area for timber lorries and shortly after leave the track and turn right across an older felled area. Sadly however this is as good as it gets. If you really want to access the summit then continue walking west approx 150 metres, swing right and trash your way through the trees for almost 100 metres.
You’ll be rewarded with trees in your face in every direction. There’s no summit cairn to be seen [ well maybe some rocks under an enormous heap of moss! } which was an near as my GPS could calculate. Itch scratched, time to trash my way back to civilisation: but I won’t scratch this one for quite a while again. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1092/comment/15874/
