A memorable visit
by Geo  7 Jun 2022
2nd visit, this using the Annaloughan Loop.
I brought my camping gear and at 51 years of age spent my first night alone on a mountain!
On the way up, passed thru the aircrash site from 1942. Nice little perspex display unit with small parts of the B-17 and what looks like an Airfix model of same. There was also 3 large pieces of the landing gear on the ground nearby.
From the top I had a glorious sunset while I vainly searched for a piece of sheltered ground with a level stoneless footprint big enough for my home for the night.
I made do with a poor enough pitch and got myself into night mode.
After a couple hours sleep, I was woken by flapping fabric, the wind direction and strength had changed and that was end of any chance of sleep.
It was fully light at 5am and I struck camp and head over to the little lochan to the east where I had breakfast with a glorious solitary view.
I then explored the second top, the one with the cairn, before returning back via the crash site to return to the Annaloughan Loop and use it to return to my car.
I had a slightly surreal experience at dusk the night before when setting up my tent, I could have sworn that I heard voices several times, but at no time did I see anyone, perhaps the ghosts of those young men who met their maker on the side of the mountain 80 years ago.

Great views for short but steep climb
by Fergalh  1 Mar 2014
Take Omeath road out of Jenkinstown at forest turn right and than park at J14075 09486 starA. Next cross gate and follow rough track up hill,this track peters out in places but is roughly to the right of the 3 or 4 ridges before you get to the top.There is a small cairn on top this can be a steep in places but worthwhile climb.

Always ask landowner permission to cross land, never ever damage fences and beware of livestock. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1119/comment/15866/
