Flat top but excellent viewing platform.
by Harry Goodman  21 Jul 2011
Climbed Carrignabinnia on 10 10 10 as the fourth top in a round that also included Temple Hill, Knockaterrif Beg, Lyracappul and Monabrack (For earlier part of the route see my comments on Lyracappul). Having left Lyracappul summit R8456223179 A we followed the ridge down NE and then up to the flat summit area and the "summit" at R8500023700 B or there abouts! We also had as a guide the stone wall to our right running along from Lyracappul in a NE direction, the same stone wall, it turned out, which we had encountered on Slievecushnabinnia, in mist, the previous day. From Carrignabinnia top we also had our first view of Slievecushnabinnia and Galtymore both of which we had topped but not seen, due to mist, on the previous day. From the top we changed direction and headed SSE across the broad moorland top, over the wall and off in search of Monabrack our fifth and final mountain for the day.
