Short Hop From Brown's Hill
by Aidy  12 Jan 2014
After climbing Brown's Hill, it was relatively easy to make the hop across to Croaghnageer. There was a sort of raised, flat valley separating the two, with a short descent from Brown's Hill, and an easy ascent to the summit of Croaghnageer. Conditions were excellent in the ice and snow, and the views over the rest of the Bluestacks were breathtaking. It looked like Croaghanirwore would be easily reached from here, but as darkness was closing in, I decided instead to begin the trek back via Brown's Hill again, taking in a lower top on Croaghnageer, with its own cairn, on the way. By the time I collapsed into the car, my muscles were aching, my shoulders were sore from a rubbish backpack and my knees were protesting. But I had a feeling of deep contentment and my growing obsession with the Buestacks had deepened further.. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/325/comment/15775/
