Easy climb for the kids...
by tmsr  4 Jul 2012
Having climbed Mount Leinster, we crossed over from the Nine Stones and waled up to summit of Knockroe. It was very boggy underfoot, not helped in places by evidence of hoof prints - tarmac on Mount Leinster access road was marked with horse dung, so must be stables somewhere nearby!
Quite busy today - even spotted a couple with a toddler taking on the first slope which is very easily accessed from the 9 Stones viewing point. Other kids were using that crest to fly their kites, but no handgliding in the area today.
The cairn at summit is easily reached in about 25 mins ( with kids) and soft ground allows for a bog run on descent. Views are excellent and gives a great perspective across to Mount Leinster. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/376/comment/14705/
