A tale of much Comploration !
by three5four0  4 Oct 2011
After Knockacommeen, the current Mrs three5four0 declined the offer of a walk up Knockullane and instead settled into reading the latest book in the Game of Thrones series and await my return to the car.

I will not mention the ground, as it has been well described by both Jackill and Peter, but only describe the search for the summit, amongst the swellings mentioned by Peter Walker. If you look at Peters photo of DBloke approaching an area of higher ground, this and Peters point , just over the fence in the middle ground of the photo, both break the 460 contour, according to the map.

But heres the thing, both are still a distance away from the mountains spot height of 462, so from Peters (which you access by crossing the fence at W 224 799 B ) I continued on along this firebreak, to where it arrives at the next contour, I then turned left into a slight clearing, checking the GPS it informed me that I had gone right past the spot height. So back along the way I came, till I spied a place where I thought I might get through the dense trees and went for it. Found another slight rise, then managed to pop back out where I was earlier, with the gps confirming that. Not one to admit defeat, it was back into the trees, this time mostly on my hands and knees, only to pop back out at the fire break again near Peters highest point, back into the trees again, over another slight rise, then again this might have been the one I found earlier! Eventually arriving what looked like an old in grown firebreak, a quick scout to another point, convinced me it was time to make for the fence, dually arriving out on the hillside, a short distance from where I entered the forest.

I suspect one of these rises, in the trees, is the spot height and summit, for 2 reasons. 1. even though the GPS only had my route brushing close to the spot height, I could see no other high ground near me, when I was on one of the rises. 2 Giving the high rate of summit spot heights in the wrong place, in this area, I suspect this will be the case with Knockullane as well.

My GPS track looks a right mess for this summit, and more interestingly it also gave a high point of 472!

So it was onto Knockullane next, picking bits of foliage off my rucksack and clothing on the way there. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/574/comment/6569/
