I approached Galtybeg from the summit of Cush, and it’s quite a steep drop to the col below, which of course means a rather steep pull up Galtybeg. However, the ground between these two mountains is very pleasant underfoot, except for the bottom of the col where it’s a little soggy. As you climb Galtybeg great views are opened up of Knockastackeen and Greenane mountains and especially of Borheen Lough below you. The views from the small, unadorned, craggy summit are superb. The bleak southern Galtees are spread out below you, you can easily see the ‘Black Road’, and the Knockmealdowns shimmering in the distance. Knockmealdown itself stands out clearly. On this crystal clear day I remembered my recent trip up that mountain when I was caught in a storm and couldn’t see a thing. My next target was Galtymore, about 50 minutes away.
