Truskmore...access?
I used the road to the TV transmitter to reach the summit today,3/1/06...thereby avoiding confrontation with local hostility.75 mins up...50 mins down.
it was approaching dusk as i reached the top,but no worry as the roadway was my guide down in the dark...and what beautiful night views of Sligo,Manorhamilton and Bundoran...lit up in the night.

earlier in the day I had summited Cuilcagh from the southern side, east of Glengevlin...initial climb to aerial mast,then continue upwards and loop round to the visible cairn on cuilcagh's summit.
what marvellous views on a beautiful early january morning ,in all directions...heavenly.
So, even in the winter both mts can be done in the one day,with a courtesy call to the Shannon Pot on way from Cuilcagh to Truskmore. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/201/comment/2116/
