first climb
by wild_brian  24 Oct 2015
new to MountainViews so just wanted to weigh in with my expierence. only getting into the walks/hikes. parked at kippure estate and walked up the right hand side road off the r759 for 10-15 mins until i came across the entrance to the forest and from there followed the winding road until i seen the rocky trail and water dripping down. thought to myself that surely this was the way to the top and i was correct. after a hard nights rain it was quite slippy and marshy in places. made it a little tougher than i expected but still moderate exertion level. i was full sure there was a "shortcut" to kippure estate and took obviously the wrong was on a bend where there was old vehicle tracks and a lot of old cut down branches. had to retrace my steps and go back the way i came.
opinions and advice welcome total time was 2 hours Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/241/comment/18367/
