Scramble To The Summit
by Aidy  19 Aug 2014
I started from the Reelan Valley, heading almost to the top of Glascarns Hill, but just short of the summit I bore west, across the flank of Croaghbane, crossing the Effernagh River high up where it was only about a foot wide. As I had climbed Croaghbane before, and today I wanted to get as far as Lavagh Beg, I stayed below the summit, and made straight for Ardnageer. I scrambled up the steep northeast side and reached the summit marked by a cairn. The rest of my intended walk over Ardnageer SW Top, Croaghgorm, Lavagh More and Lavagh Beg now stretched out in front of me. Great views in the other directions too, particularly down over Lough Belshade and Lough Eske. I would have liked to have taken the time to explore the southeastern slopes looking down over Lough Belshade, but I had a long walk still ahead, so had to leave it for another day. Instead, it was onwards to Ardnageer SW Top. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/205/comment/17625/
