jackill on Knocknabreeda
by jackill 21 Nov 2006
We struck out in two cars from Kenmare early on a frosty, November morning and climbed over a sleepy Molls Gap and down into the Owenreagh valley. We left one car on the crossroads at Knocknsallagh Bridge (V83994 78630) and drove up the valley to A (V80532 77882) where there is a layby on the right with room for two cars. On with the gear and up the tarred road to B (V80608 78026) where we stopped for a moment to take in the snow covered ridge up to Mullaghanattin before hopping the wire and starting the climb up to point 568 mtrs. After the tremendous view of Stumpa Duloigh we headed on to Knocknabreeda. It may be small in stature but what views from the summit. All around is the evidance of the unstoppable power of glaciation. Rocks of green sandstone and siltstone with lenses of conglomerate quatrz and red jasper scoured and flattened by an ice cap centered on the Kenmare area as it forced its way northwards between Purple mountain and the Reeks cutting the deep col of the Gap of Dunloe. As the Ice moved it dragged loose shattered stones across the surface of the underlying rock and embedded some of these as which can now be seen as rounded pebbles in the rocks surfaces. Larger rocks or Erratics (non native rocks) were deposited randomly about the area. As we walked several examples of red sandstone erratics were to be seen.
Geology can only say so much and I guess not everyone gets excited by old stones(pardon me).
The most striking memory of the day for me was the view in the attached photo taken on Knocknabreeda, climbing the Reeks is one thing but go on, love a little mountain! they've got so much to give. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/329/comment/2551/

Picture: Sunrise over Purple Mountain
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: mountainviews.ie/summit/329/comment/17518/

If the ground is wet it can be a real slog to get there and the top is quite boggy/boring. Beware the steep falls back into the valley in misty weather. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/329/comment/2544/
