Greenane West ain't anything remarkable (especially in fog) except for being roughly the half way point if you're doing the length of the galtees. From the reservoir in Scarrough Woods above Cahir (S014246 A) it takes about 4 hours to reach (via Slieveanard, Sturrakeen and Greenane East (good lunch spot (photo))). From here another 4.5 hours to the village of Anglesborough (via Galybeg, Mor, wall, Lyracappul, and Temple Hill (not an easy climb to finish the day!)). Not one i'd recommend on a cloudy day (which it most certainly was on 22/01/06) and whether to do our route or reverse is debatable (do you want the temple hill climb at the end of the day or the 3 hour slog across bog on the east side?). Whatever you do don't start (or finish) at Ballydavid youth hostel, it's cheating! Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/53/comment/2157/
