Second Time Lucky!

I have the same set of cards as dr_banuska and have also had this walk on my planner for quite some time. Finally got around to climbing it today having had an aborted attempt last weekend due to ferociously strong winds and driving hail/snow at Crockmore. Today was much milder although the stretch from Crockmore to Crockbrack and then on to Craigbane was very exposed with strong winds.

I followed the entire card route and descended from Craigbane along the track marked on the OS map and back into Moneyneany making a 12.3km circular route.

This is an easy to moderate route with easy navigation. The only non-tracked section is from the summit of Crockbrack to Craigbane but the suggested route follows the fenceline exactly.

I found the summit to be approx 145m from the summit waypoint in the Emerald Isle maps and will upload my reading here as it matches the OS map summit. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/403/comment/14914/
