Getting Off Emlagh
by CaptainVertigo  24 Aug 2014
Wicklore tells us that the descent from Cnoc na Stuaice along its western nose is difficult for various reasons. I wonder if the old forest tracks ( marked X to Y in the screengrab I've attached ) might provide a solution? One could still have that "King of the World" moment (from the film Titanic) by walking along the nose to the point marked W, and then take a diagonal route to X in order to get down quickly and safely. Maybe someone living in the area might have the time to check this out for us some day. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/506/comment/17641/
