Impressive Leitrim cliff scenery
by eamonoc  5 Oct 2014
Climbed on 12/9/2014. Following a hard but fabulous ascent of Keeloges Mt looked across Glenade valley towards Truskmore and Gortnagarn, and spied a path that worked its way above Glenade Lough and the precipitious slopes that give access to the plateau above Glenade to an area mentioned on OS sheet 16 as Largy. Parked car at G 8148 4639 A room for one car parked carefully, crossed gate into rough field walked sth for about 100mts to grassy track leading uphill underneath impressive cliffs, path goes steeply uphill above a small forested area below to the left, carefully following this path it leads to the plateau at a junction of fences, headed to the right from here always handrailing the impressive void above Glenade on the right. was able to follow small sheep tracks along the very edge of the cliffs to point G7850 4651 B Eagle rock in all its splendour is viewed to the west from here, summit of Gortnagarn is approx 500mts uphill to the left form here. A word of caution is advised the path from Glenade is narrow in places above the forest with very steep drops to the left as you ascend, in wet weather caution would be advised as this path is slippery in some areas, the sheep tracks that hug the cliffs above Glenade are very close to the edge of the cliffs with a couple of big gaping holes hidden among the heather hereabouts, with all caution taken the round trip is approx 10kms car to car, and the views over Glenade are very imppressive.
