Short Summary created by jackill, simon3  14 Jan 2012
There are 2 main carparks to access Galtybeg from, The Black road R89306 20345 A (ht333m), Clydagh Bridge R87450 27780 B (ht137m)

As of May 2010 signs have gone up at these access points requesting no dogs be brought on the Mountain.

The Black road route could be called the "tourist route" and is the most popular as it is a rocky, easy to follow track all the way to a "Y" in the track as you reach a stone cairn at R89345 23482 C (Point D) (h637m), go left here and follow the stoney track which becomes badly eroded mud, crossing to the col between Galtymore and Galtybeg, then turn right up to the summit.

You may also carry on past the stone cairn, after about 500 meters the stoney track ends and then you need to cross the bog, skirting peat hags(try to stay high and to the left of them) to the col overlooking Borheen lough , look out for the benchmark at R89476 24164 D and close beside it (look out for the gap between two rocky outcrops)the start of an easy track down to the lake on its west side.Turn left here and ascend to the summit.

From Clydagh the traditional route is a magnificent circuit taking Cush and Galtybeg in as well, this is however a fair test of stamina so be prepared.

There is no marker or cairn at the summit , its really just the highest point on a rocky ridge. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/41/comment/4801/
