oldsoldier on Knockaterriff Beg, 2009
by oldsoldier  11 Feb 2009
I Climbed knockaterriff and knockaterriff beg today as I had to bag these as part of my 600 meter peaks in 2009. I approached from the Pigeonrock glen. The road in is becoming very broken and will be soon unusable for cars. I walked in along the Pigeonrock glen from the sheep shed at the end of the road. The ridge of Temple hill was on my left for a long walk until I turned right and went straight to the summit. it should be noted that there are two cairns on the summit of knockaterriff. As I approached up form Pigeonrock glen I came across one but according to my GPS it was in the wrong place, after searching about for five minutes or so I came across the real summit. In fog it might be a hazard. Galty Mór looked resplendant in the distance. On my descent I released an ewe that was caught in the wire fence. She had caught her hoof between two strands of wire. She was very quiet and allowed me to release her without as much as a whimper. She limped off slowly, hope she will be ok. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/141/comment/3589/
