Summiting a Vandeleur-Lynam, or er, not?
by simon3  23 Jul 2012
Old certainties like "safe as a bank" crumble, don't they? So it was with trepidation that I went with member jackill up Knockeenatoung. My plan was simple, reach the top of this place as a relatively easy Vandeleur-Lynam on what was scheduled to be a dry day in a wet summer. And I have mostly explored the Galtys from the north side, so this would be different.

But then I realised. The height marked for the place is 601m on the OS. A marginal case which on accurate measurement could easily turn out to be under 600 and therefore not a VL. Was the summit going to be demoted from the list or not? The last time I walked with jackill we went over Corrig in Wicklow and it turned out not to be an Arderin.

A measurement near the cairn with the precision differential GPS unit (accurate to 10 to 15cm) showed that the base of the cairn was less than 600m.

The picture show jackill using a small Victorian instrument known as an Abney level. It won't tell you your height but it will tell you whether another place is higher or lower. And it became apparent that the fairly recent cairn wasn't as high the land around the concrete hut. In fact the peat hag just behind and to the right of the concrete hut turns out to be over 600m.

So, whew, I have one more V-L done. Just 23 to go. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/272/comment/14731/
