A short trip from Moanlaur
Short Summary created by liz50  5 Jan 2019
Park at Q717 056 starA A, the highest point of the Aughils to Camp road, where there is room for 1/2 cars. Head directly west, following a bog road at Q 716 053 starB to avoid the worst of the knee-high heather for about 1km. The slope gradually increases and becomes quite steep at around 400m ascent. The heather disappears and the terrain is mostly grass and rock, and firm underfoot, and after 1.5km you will reach the summit of Knockbrack at 459m, a longish summit area with the highest point, which is at the eastern end, being quite indistinct. Continue west passing some rocky outcrops at the western end of Knockbrack, and descend about 35m to a col before turning south west and making a gradual ascent of Moanlaur over 1km. Continue along the ridge to a short drop to a col and a short ascent to the summit of Knockmore. 1.5 hours from car to summit. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1425/comment/18053/
