Sunday 22nd March 09 Did a there and back from Sally Gap to Mullaghcleevaun. Carrigvore is a great way to warm up as you go straight away uphill in a SW direction up a not too steep incline of burnt off heather along a rough path made by the boots of those who have gone before. You can reach the top in 15-20 minutes or so and if you are lucky a lovely panorama from Kippure in the north the Tonduff's and Djouce to the east and mighty Mullaghcleevaun to the south west peeping across Duff hill and Gravale.Luckily for us although the mist was soupy and opaque on our outbound leg we did have views through hazy spring sunshine on our return leg. My first time on this route, and thankfully dry weather for the previous two weeks have meant the peat covering this whole area was, for the most part dry and traversable. See Gravale entry for further descriptions. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/133/comment/3670/

Aptly named
by march-fixer  22 May 2012
An easy summit to attain with a just reward at the top. There are wonderful views all around and excellent shelter (should the wind be from the SW ...). An excellent warm up for an attack on the undulating spine leading to Duff Hill and beyond.

It is easy to approach from either north, east or south directions. The view down the valley towards Laragh is exceptional - a wide open spread of Wicklow upland. Who says this particular area of west Wicklow is uninteresting? Where else do you get such an unspoilt spread of 'Mountain Views'! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/133/comment/6813/

Outstanding viewing point, for little effort.

An enjoyable stroll, either from Sally Gap itself, or from the Military Road car park. Carrigvore has 360 degree splendour. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/133/comment/15869/

Cloud inversion
by tbaines  11 Feb 2015
Start of a circuit above the clouds (Out to East Top, down the Inchavore Valley, and back via Luggala - see tracks). Cloud inversion nearly all day, warm in the sun, cold in the valleys. Some of the ground helpfully frozen. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/133/comment/17840/
