A Welcome New Addition
by Aidy  16 Jun 2015
I climbed Glascarns Hill over a year ago, not knowing at the time that it would make it on to MV, and I was just using it as a stepping stone on to Croaghbane. Even then however, I was glad I went to the summit, which was a magnificent rocky top, with great views over Cronloughan lough, the Owendoo and Owengarve River valleys, and to all the surrounding mountains. I started at the old schoolhouse in the Reelan Valley, and headed south-southeast directly up the hill, keeping the Effernagh River on my right hand side as I ascended. Initially boggy ground and tussocky grass and heather, but fantastic rocky terrain nearer the top. Glad to see it on here. I continued on to Croaghbane before being driven back down by possibly the strongest winds i've yet experienced on a mountain. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1413/comment/18130/
