Climbed February 20th 06. Accessed from Slieve Aneirin (first part of walk). From summit of Slieve Aneirin I took a bearing of 48 degrees NE to take me safely onto the col (H028169 starA) south of Knockacullion. Thankfully, the mist cleared as I approached the col, providing me with a clear view of my target. The col between Aneirin is, once again, quite marshy with fairly long trussock grass and gorse to negotiate making the going tougher than it might first appear (or maybe my early morning start was catching up with me). In any event I reached the relatively flat and featureless summit, (that is featureless apart from it’s locheen), in brilliant sunshine. The early morning mist had all but burned away, lingering only (as it did all day on Cuilcagh to the north-east) but haze hindering long distance views/photography. Nevertheless there are lovely views north over a fertile valley to Slievenakilla and west towards Lough Allen. I was intending to take a break on the summit but due to the lack of suitable ‘dry’ seating and the nearness of Bencroy I decided to postpone the break making do with a Mars bar 'on the hoof' as I descended the northern slope of Knockacullion. (See Bencroy for final part of walk). Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/337/comment/2193/
