Trig Pillar Subsidence Issues .. by ahogan   (Show all for Sliabh Chathair na Gaoithe)

Not quite an Arderin

I approached Cahernageeha from the west, on a linear walk from Farraniaragh. From the latter's summit, a line of fence posts leads the way eastwards on grassy terrain, and shortly I picked up a green road to my right (south) of the broad ridge. This accelerated progress. Through a couple of gates, and then following a fence up easy slopes to the distinctive listing trig pillar, at 499 metres just missing out on Arderinship.
The summit may be featureless, but there are superlative views hereabouts. I retraced my steps back to Farraniaragh (the green road contours around the hill) and back down to the car park at the pass. 2 hours and 45 minutes that included a lunch stop.
