Picture: Hen mountain from Rockyriver track

We approached Pigeon Rock from Hen and Cock, refer to same for start of route. From cock mountain we headed for the plateau between cock and pigeon which feeds into the Spelga Dam. We had read so many comments about how boggy this area was, but thankfully on our visit we were lucky. On descent from cock we headed almost due south in an effort to pick up the small spur jutting out from Pigeon, and to avoid most of the boggy terrain. It seemed to pay off as before long we arrived at a well trodden but somewhat dry path which took us almost to the top of Pigeon.

Pigeon Rock seemed to go on forever without sight of the summit cairn but we stumbled on Batts Wall and in turn the summit cairn, which appears to be a growth from the corner angle of Batts Wall. After a quick lunch we stuck with Batts Wall and discoverd numerous small pools of water dotted along it, each with many dragonflies and toads. Navigation is striaght forward, and sticking with Batts Wall as it turns sharply at another angle you begin the descent to the coll between Pigeon and Slievemoughanmore. At the stile we stayed on the right hand side of the Rowan Tree River as it snaked downhill and brought us right onto the Rockyriver track, which we simply followed right back to the car. A very enjoyable short step-out with a total distance of just over 11km. The picture below of the tors on hen mountain were taken as the weather lifted along the Rockyriver track.
