The View from There
by CaptainVertigo  30 Sep 2015
So what if you were to contour round to the South Top (from Priest's Leap Gap) and then ascend to Knockboy at 702m ? You would descend to the little lake, which lies at just under 500m, and then ascend 200m or so to the main peak at 702m. The interesting thing is that Knockboy presents as being no more than a 200m summit when viewed from the South Top. Quite a tame view of a mountain that is just over 700m high. I took the attached photo of Knockboy from the South Top. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/389/comment/18335/
