eflanaga on Ardnageer SW Top, 2006
by eflanaga  9 Jun 2006
Climbed June 7th – After a short stop on Ardnageer summit IG 96967 90899 starB I took a bearing of 244 degrees and dropped down over exposed rock before crossing terrain consisting of more of the same as well as a few peat hags. Generally, though the going was firm, no doubt aided by the prolonged spell of good weather enjoyed for over a week. The mound of white quartzite on Ardnageer SW is like a beacon and helps identify the mountain (can be seen fairly clearly if picture enlarged!). The climb to the summit and the small cairn there is relatively easy approaching as I was from Ardnageer. The ascent would prove more difficult if coming from other directions I expect. From the summit Croaghgorm (Bluestack) lay just across the valley. I was sorely tempted to make for it right then but I had already planned to veer west along it’s northern flank to Lavagh More the next peak in this 9 peak circuit Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/235/comment/2387/
