Back for a second attempt.

The weather forecast was good for Sat 11 Jan 2014, so having been beaten back by Wintery conditions before Christmas, I decided to have another attempt at Brown's Hill and Croaghnageer. I parked at the picnic spot at the Northern end of Barnes Gap, and turning right on to the main road, a walk of a few metres led to a forestry road. A few hundred metres along the track, after emerging from the trees, I struck out across the bog to ascend the hill from the South East. As usual in the Bluestacks, it was difficult walking initially to reach the base of the hill and ascend the lower slopes. Very boggy with high grass and heather. However, it gets easier with height, as the ground levels out and becomes more rocky. The reward was the frozen summit with fantastic views in all directions. Highly recommended, both for its own sake, and as an approach to Croaghnageer, which was my next goal for the day. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/464/comment/15774/
