Short climb to great views

Tackled Croaghonagh today, parking in the carpark at the northeastern end of Barnes Gap, then doubling back a little to take the track leading to the quarry, before heading up the open hillside following the line of telegraph poles. The going was fairly hard as, although not very steep, the thick, long grass and heather was difficult to walk through. Near the top I met the access road leading to the communications masts on the summit, so I followed that the rest of the way up.

The weather wasn't the best but I could still apprecitate the views across to Croaghconnellagh, east over Lough Mourne, and west over Lough Eske to Donegal Bay, Slieve League and Benbulbin. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/618/comment/17549/
