Welcome to Cruelville

Some people might say that there's no such thing as a bad mountain or hill, but on a wet and gloomy November day it was hard not to think that Crenville is the exception to the rule.
Despite the weather, everything was grand from Slievemeen to Slievemartin, but once over the fence and into the 'Crenville Cul De Sac' the terrain deteriorated into high tussocky grass that sapped the energy and caused more than a few tumbles. The layout of the forestry didn't help, a labyrinth that isn't accurately reflected on maps or satellite imagery.
Our attempt to find a way through the trees to access a track to the west required some awkward tree bashing, and with the light fading it was a relief to finally hit the trail.
This is an area quite unlike the better known Mournes summits to the east and It goes without saying, for baggers (or the lost) only. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/582/comment/20677/
