A worthy Carn inclusion
by eamonoc  5 Jun 2022
A most rewarding ascent on a good day above Glengarriff Bay. Ascent from South see track 4678, route up easily navigated folllowing a fairly substantial quad track now and then, great views from Cobduff 378m, over surrounding area with Derroograne clearly visible to the North. Curiosity led me to follow the quad track all the way back to where it intersected the Beara Way, thankfully this quad track is not visible from below.
