Figures I wouldn't remember my camera on this gorgeous summit. Climbed up from Knocknagowan, a rather easy slog, basically a straight line except for having to steer east of a ravine. Lots of peat cutting, and very boggy terrain. Lucky that the ground was frozen. The views all around, as pdtempan remarked, are fantastic. We were fortunate to have high visibility, and saw the snow-covered rolling Mangerton and jagged, forbidding Reeks beckoning far to the west. Perhaps the reason this is climbed so little. Anyhow, after taking in the western view, Glenaprehane and the flatlands north, we headed at a SW bearing to a fork in the Glashanasharragh Stream (177 854 A). There are plenty of rocks to help passage, but the banks get very steep south of here. Continued SW over the peak at 448m (170 848 B) and to the small trailhead on the OSI map at 166 842 C. This requires another stream crossing, and takes place over very boggy and uneven terrain. Wouldn't go this way again. Taking the trail south, we hit the road and went 900m east to the car at 173 838 D. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/135/comment/1503/
