Climbed Feb 04 fom Moydamlaght Forest (grid 743986 F). Followed the well signposted Ulster Way to B42 through Moneyeanny village for 1.5 miles. Turned onto a narrow lane climbing slopes of Crockmore (478m).

As the lane winds up the hill houses and farm buildings are left behind, with ever widening views. From the summit of Crockmore turn right to follow the fence to Crockbrack. The summit is marked only by the joining of fences. Views were crystal clear E and S to the Antrim Hills, Lough Neagh (mostly masked by Slieve Gallion) and the Mournes in the distance. To the W and N the Sperrins were laid out along the Genelly Valley. The walk to the summit took 2 hours but this was with 4-5 " snow with drifts up to 3 feet.

Follow fence W as drops down into Finglen. Cross burn and up other side to high ground between Mullaghsallagh and Oughtmore (697962 G). Drop into next glen along Golamuck Burn to Goles River and the isolated settlement of Goles. Had to follow the river upstream to find a suitable crossing point.

Follow fence (677964 H) onto southern flank of Meenard. A good climb before views open out W to Sawel and Dart. The ground was snow covered with big drifts filling in between the peat hags so going wasn't too quick. Fence continues right along mountain top - there is a little cairn of sorts off in the peat hags.

The Sperrins are all about views which to my mind are unsurpassed in the north of Ireland. I was able to see the Donegal Hills to W, with Muckish very distinct, N to Inishowen and Lough Foyle and E to Knocklayd in Antrim. I could even see the Scottish islands further N. S the line of the Mournes stretched out to Slieve Gullion. Of course the immediate scenery of the Sperrins was thrown too.

From Meenard follow the ever present fence and drop down 300ft before the short climb to the summit of Mullaghaneany, through peat hags. Summit is marked by the joining of fences (again!) and the views as outlined were perfect with clear air from the north. Taking in Oughtmore would have been a natural finish to the circuit but as was nearly dark i decided to follow fence NE to the B40 running through Banagher Forest.

With snow on the ground and a clear night sky there were even shadows on the ground, though with no torch I had to take it very easy and did find the going tricky. On reaching the road turn right (east) and follow as it drops down out of the hills, the road was covered in frozen snow and ice and again was difficult underfoot. With the clear night sky and isolation of walking along the road for 3 miles I had a fantastic experience with the parallel electricity pylons buzzing away to the side. At (738984 I) turn left along the lane and left again to reach the carpark (9 hours and 14 miles). Linkback:
