24km Galtee Hike
by SpiritOf84  15 Aug 2015
Bagged Greenane West (786m) during a 24km hike over the Galtees on Thursday. Took the Black Road to the cairn under Galtybeg. The plan was to go east from here to Greenane (802m) but when Galtymore winks at you on such a glorious day it's hard to ignore her! There were a lot of walkers with the same idea - we met about 20-30 people over the course of the day (which is unusual for a Thursday). Refreshment stop at the top of Galtymore while spotting quite a bit of raptor activity (peregrine falcons possibly). Then down to Galtybeg and east to Greenane West.

Negotiating the peat hags to the summit was energy sapping and the tiny cairn at the summit didn't exactly provide any overwhelming sense of fulfilment. Marched on a bit further to our turning point at O'Loughlin's Castle (Greenane will have to wait for another day as the detour to Galtymore had eaten too far into our time).

Our return journey to the Black Road took us around the southern slope of Greenane West to avoid the worst of the peat hags (in hindsight it would probably have been easier to have ascended from this side too - albeit a bit steeper). The views down the valley to Glengarra Wood to our left were spectacular. When the Black Road comes into view keep an eye on it to make sure you don't descend below it's level as you'll face a steep climb back up to it when you get around there. An thoroughly enjoyable six hours to complete.
