I struck for Galtybeg from the Youth Hostel R922-209 A forest path makes the first 2k very easy. I then had to cross a fence and cross the stream twice and I walked for about another kilometre close to the river which has some mini falls and cascades. It was time though to try to make height which was difficult as a strong northerly was blowing and may have gusted to gale force on occasions. At one stage I had to lose distance to make height. I intended going up the gentler slope on Galtybeg from the east shoulder but the wind forced me on to the steeper southern side. Spent a few minutes on the ridge and took some pictures of Borheen Lough 897-245. 10 feet down on the sheltered side and it was off with the hats and gloves and jackets to have the tea and bread and jam sandwiches in the sunshine. I made more use of the Black Road on the way back and hit the stream early in order to enjoy al it's funny little twists and turns and ups and downs and its myriad of wonderful sounds.
