A better way?
by paddyhillsbagger  13 Mar 2016
I parked at L61729 51734 A and walked up muddy path to climb steep slope to the spine of Gortrumnagh. Trig visible in distance so proceeded towards it only to find a quarry has ripped out a large section! Made my way around the obstacle to reach summit and wonderful views. But there has to be a better way to the top! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1324/comment/18454/
