It is hard to find the words to describe Black Mountain NE Top – there is so little to describe! While the surrounding hills all have had something written about them, this hill has been left out. In the interest of plugging this literary gap I will endeavour to gather all my information on Black Mountain NE Top and see if it amounts to a worthy post.

A minor road crosses the saddle between Black Mountain NE Top and Black Mountain at J 102 163 A. Another minor road leads from the saddle up to Black Mountain. Just opposite this junction a rough track heads NE around Black Mountain NE Top. I drove up this track anxious to find a place to hide the car – this area seems to attract similar antisocial activities as the Military Road above Dublin. Just up the track I pulled into a side track at J105 165 B and parked next to some abandoned mattresses and other junk. At least the car was safely hidden from the main road below. It was only a trudge of a couple of hundred metres and a rise of about 15 metres to the featureless summit area at J 102 165 C. It didn’t feel like a summit and it didn’t look like one – just a minor bump really. Not much of an achievement at all. To ease my conscience I included Black Mountain NE Top in a mini circuit taking in Clermont and Anglesey. So that’s all I have to offer. Not the most interesting post ever written. However at least it fills the void, and pulls back the curtain to reveal the mystery of this hill, or lack of! The length of time it takes to type ‘Black Mountain NE Top’ is more than this hill is worth! Including it in a long linear walk from Anglesey to Carnavaddy and beyond such as eflanga did is probably the most exciting option for this hill. Trackback:
