Arroo from the east
by Colin Murphy  11 Feb 2013
Most walkers approach Arroo from the steeply-sided west slope, but as I wanted to also take in Conwal North top to the east, I decided to start from the eastern slopes. There is a parking space opposite a track, just where some forestry starts at G858 516 E. (Alternately there is another clear parking space 300m or so south up the road). Follow the distinct track across the road from the parking spot, which continues for about 500m, and then peters out amid a turf-cutting area. Continue directly west across gently rising and in parts, distinctly boggy land (although it is relatively easy to navigate around the very marshy bits). Around G848 516 F the grassy ground starts to rise fairly steeply, but is very firm underfoot. The slope eases about 300m later and there is a relatively gentle climb all the way to the summit, the approach offering a partial view of the towering cliffs on Arroo's north side. There is also a fascinating area to the north-east below the summit, (see pic) featuring a number of diminutive but very sharp peaks, surrounded by grassy bumps and knolls, which looks like the kind of place you might find a hobbit living! Returned the way I'd come, getting back to the car precisely 2 hours later. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/407/comment/14917/
