A real sting in the tail.
by Harry Goodman  6 Dec 2022
Climbed Monabrack on 10 10 10 as the fifth and final top of a circuit that also included Temple Hill, Knockaterrif Beg, Lyracappul and Carrignabinnia (For previous part of the route see my comments on Carrignabinnia). On leaving Carrignabinnia R8500023700 starC we went SE across a broad flat moorland and crossed over a wall. As we started to descend a spur, heading for Monabrack, our direction changed to just east of south passing over a prominant litte knoll on the way down to the coll R8560022300 starD. The climb up to the top of Monabrack was steep and long, made more so by a false top crossed some way from the summit area. Coming as it did for us as the last of a five top round it was the sting in the tail. From the flat summit area, marked by a small pile of stones R8597721887 starE we had an excellent view of the full Galtymore ridge and back to Lyracappul. To complete our walk we continued SE down a long spur to pick up a fence and grassy track at around R8620021200 starF and then down to a forest path, past an old abandoned mobile home, back to the start R8690219633 starG The last part of our walk, from the top of Monabrack down to the start, could be reversed and used as an access route for this mountain.
