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. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/41/comment/6106/
