My return visit.

I have climbed this mtn many times , although i can only see one of my comments
way back on 04/2/2006.. Yes . it was just as cold although sunny last Friday afternoon.
I came up from the village of Kilbane (my normal route ) and parked left hand side facing Killaloe , at the top of the old gap road to Killaloe.
( I mentioned the entrance in my comment re, Moylussa mtn ) . The gate at this
turf cutting access no longer appears to exist . Although the route up was fairly sound,after all
our dry weather,.when crossing the bog i managed on two occassions to sink half way up to my knees...so be careful !!look for the small tracks and test the ground if you are unsure,
I must have been mistaken back in 2006 when i mentioned that the grid ref..R628 749 was slightly out) Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/401/comment/14967/
