An Icy Gully at Muskry

Reached 786m from the north side of the Galtees. Walk began below waterworks at Rossadrehid R920 283 C. Heading via forest tracks to gate and style onto Open Mountain at R928 267 D. At this point you have two options either straight up the valley via the white posts (marking the route of the water main) or stick to the service track for Lough Muskry. In bad weather the track is probably best advisable as underfoot conditions can be somewhat damp. As you approach Muskry keep to you right and about 10m above lakeshore. Head for unnamed lake at rear of Muskry. Once you have arrived here you can begin to gain height by entering the gully to the right as you look up (on the map most right stream entering small lake). I have been in this particular gully on a few occasions and it always amazes me at how much this gully has changed. Best conditions I ever seen it was 19 march 2007 (as seen in picture) where there was some nice ice scrambling. Once reached high ground O Loughlins castle is a nice lunch stop and then onto 786. Once the high point has been bagged the option for the return route is head for the col between 786m and Gatlybeg above Lough Boreen. There is a sheep track around the back of the Lough from the col which will bring you out at 897 247 E. This is a very handy track and it offers nice vice of the lake below. From here it’s a short walk to the forest corner and from there it’s a damp slog via the tree line to the forest track at 908 257 F. And from here its forest tracks to the cars.

Unfortunately I cannot be credited with the excellent photo, as that’s me leading. So pk well done on the excellent picture Trackback:
