Another Route
by aidand  9 Sep 2015
There is a steep but much more direct route up this mountain. Park on the roadside at about Q522 089 C where the road from Cloghane meets the road over the Connor Pass. There is a gate opposite and a public path that leads to Loch A'Duinn. Follow this path for about a mile and then head off to the right before you reach the lake. Ascend Slievenalecka directly up its north ridge. There is a line of fencing along the ridge. This is a testing climb but doesn't feel unsafe. Car to the summit shouldn't take much more than 1 hour. From the summit it is worth exploring the Coumanare Lakes. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/599/comment/18305/
