As Part of a Long Route
by CaptainVertigo  13 Jun 2016
I have given some thought as to how to get to this much lauded spot (Cummeenbaun) while taking in the maximum number of Arderins and VLs along the way. Track 3036 is a 20k Onzy track which develops simon3's earlier Track 1963. Onzy's Track could be extended without too much extra work to Killane Mountain, as an out and back.
I have thrown together a plan that might work too, but before I do anything else I'm going to add the AAs and VLs and see what gives the biggest bang for buck.
Track 3036 as walked by Onzy: takes in 3 Arderins of which one is a VL; Knockreagh , Coomnadiha and Cummeenbaun, plus 3 'Arderin Beg' summits, Droppa, Caha FSET and Caha SET (which , by the way, don't count in my book)
Track 3036 extended to Killane: as above, adds another AA and an AB (total 4 Arderins of which one is a VL)
My suggested route: 4 Arderins of which one is a VL.. Can't see that my idea advances things very much!

UPDATE: 13th June 2016. I had to pop down to Kerry at the weekend to collect my bike so I legged it up Knocknagorraveela as an out and back. This now frees me to to tackle Onzy's above Track BUT with the Killane Mountain add on. It will be a long but I suspect rewarding route if I manage to pull it off. I have done a quick tot of the ascent and it doesn't seem overly arduous from that point of view. We shall see. Chickens should never be counted until they are at the proof of the pudding stage.
