paulocon on Cock Mountain, 2009
by paulocon  23 Jul 2009
Approached Cock Mountain from Slievnamiskan from where it's a fairly handy climb up to the twin-peaked top with both peaks bearing a cairn. The Northern peak would appear to be the highest. Cock Mountain offers great views of Spelga Dam as well as the surrounding peaks. Some nice soul had gone to the bother of carrying a full tin of beans up to the summit but was obviously not able to carry the empty tin back down so we done our good deed for the day. What kind of person will put in the time and effort to enjoy these places yet won't leave them as they left them.. After a couple of photos, we made our way in the general direction of Pigeon Rock mountain. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/447/comment/3949/
