I struck for Galtybeg from the car park about 1/4 mile before the Youth Hostel R922-209 A forest path makes the first 2k very easy. When it turns to the right leave it and go straight ahead then cross the fence and cross the stream twice. I walked pretty much straight for the sumit after crossing the streams. Took the steeper asent to the sumit to avoid the northen wind.Was very tempted standing on the ridge to push on to Galtymore but unfotunately time was against me.Followed the same route down and had a very enjoyable day.Quite easy and very accesable-recommend for beginners!

We climbed Galtybeg coming from Greenane west, from which direction the ascent is pretty steep, as is the approach from the glen of Aherlow side. Getting to Galtybeg from the black road is pretty straightforward though. We were disappointed that we didn't manage to find the geocache on the north slope of the hill.

shrouded and slippy but....
by YoungJohn  23 Sep 2010
Today 23.09.10 turned off the N8 at the Galtymore Climb sign. We parked at the small carpark before the start of the 'black road'. Followed the road all the way until it broadened near its terminus. A large mound of stones like a cairn marked where we turned left, heading northwest. We searched for foot prints and eventually saw some just to confirm we were on the correct path. The was alot of cloud cover/mist. We came upon the col between the two Galtys after 15-20 mins or so. Having climbed Galtymore we returned to this col and headed up Galtybeg along the track to its narrow summit. Some glimpses of countryside but most of the mountain was shrouded. Back down to the col and back along the track to the black road and the car. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/41/comment/6106/

First time to the summit!
by Katie07  16 Mar 2015
On a sunny Saturday in March'15 we made our first climb to the summit of Galtybeg and well worth the trek! Had attempted the climb a couple of weeks earlier but the weather prevented us from getting anywhere near the top. So would only recommend making the trip on a clear day to make the most of the fabulous views from the top. It took us 2 hrs to reach the summit and 1.5hrs to descend.
