Forestry thinned to the north of summit
by Bunsen7  9 Aug 2020
It's a very handy walk along the track from T075823 A as per the summary and track 4000. The only thing bothering in August 2020 was the pack of flies that accompanied me on my journey. Getting there is a bit of an adventure in itself if you've not been in the area before because Askanagap would probably rival Aughavanagh for the label of "the last place that God made".

On this day the views from the summit were far ranging: the Blackstairs clearly visible to the south and Slievenamon to the south west. All the lower hills of South Wicklow spreading out as possible future outings.

The forestry to the north of the summit appears to have been felled apart from a small number of trees along the summit line. Stepping through these I was able to see northwards into the South Prison of Lugnaquilla which looks a lot less impressive from Ballycurragh than if you're standing at the foot of its gullies.
