Harry Goodman on Barnes Top, 2010
by Harry Goodman  30 Mar 2010
I climbed Barnes Top on 23 March 2010 as part of a round that included Mullaghash and Knockanbane Mountain (see also my comments on Mullaghash and Knockanbane Mt. for the start and finishof the route). After Mullaghash we climbed up from the coll below Barnes Top C642011 A along the fence going S with a touch of E. (For someone wishing to only climb Barnes Top I suggest that the route mentioned at the end of my comments on Mullaghash is used in reverse. ) The going was mostly over heather and tusocky clumps of grass for 1.2k to a fence junction near the top. On the way up we were surprised to find quite a large patch of snow still lingering on the hillside. Once at the fence junction a right and shortly after a left turn took us to the summit H638999 B. As ever one could speculate as to whether or not this was really the top or was it a clump of heather across the fence or elsewhere on the flat but bumpy summit area. From Barnes Top the view N to Mullaghash shows it to be a much more imposing hill than its modest height suggests. From the top we followed the fence NW for about 800 metres with only a shallow dip and climb up to the top of Knockanbane Mt. I enjoyed climbing this hill as part of a round including two other tops but would suggest that it is unlikely to be climbed by many walkers, even peak baggers, for its own sake. The view of Sawel SW across the valley dominates the skyline . Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/601/comment/4557/
