Beautiful Place, DREADFUL terrain
by ciarraioch  11 Nov 2014
Nearly got fooled by this one, all 261m of it. Roughest terrain I've encountered and that's including the area south of Lough Cloon. In November 2014, we went for what we thought was a 'jolly' starting at V 635 651 A as per three5four0, going across Beann Mhór, Dereenavurrig and diverting to explore the wild country to the southeast near the western mouth of the Sneem inlet V 68237 63114 B. Six hours later we arrived back to the second car at V 67920 65225 C as darkness closed in. Impossible to make progress due to rock bench followed by gulley and/or swamp followed by rock bench, and so on and on. To make matters worse, it would appear that the former East German Border personnel were drafted in to put up the fencing. It would have been impossible to navigate this terrain in darkness. Would definitely NOT recommend our route. If you have to do it, I would suggest returning directly along the grain of the land from the summit of Derrenavurrig towards our finishing point.
