Climbed Cush as part of a horseshoe walk taking in Galtybeg and Galtymore having started by turning off at Clydah brige(Ref 875 280 F OS sheet # 74) and parking the car at the first junction with forest tracks heading off to the left and right. The views towards the steep Northern face of the Galtees are well worth the climb although it is possible to skip Cush on this circuit by heading straight for the col between it and Galtybeg. Had one of those experiences that make it all worth while when dense cloud on the summit of Galymore cleared to grant me a few minutes of magnificent views while sipping my coffee !
The full circuit can be quite strenuous so allow between 5 and 6 hours to complete. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/215/comment/1889/
