Fantastic views of Reeks , Black Valley and more
by normanmccloskey  27 Jun 2014
After a talk by Simon from MV I finally stopped ignoring one of the most rewarding climbs you'll do in this area and slogged up it on a wet and windy day from the head of the pass in the Owenreagh Valley to recce a place for an overnight. After the initial 10 mins of steep slope it opens out on to a long boggy trudge towards the top but don't forget to look behind you for great views of Lough Fada across the valley. Heading in a straight line up all the way to the ridge avoids a lot of eroded bog and cut drains. At the saddle between Stoompa and Knocknabreeda follow the fence up and along for fantastic views all around. Sunrise up here is fantastic but I need to come back later in the year for the full effect on the Reeks. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/329/comment/17518/
