Harry Goodman on Knockanbane Mountain, 2010

We climbed Knockanbane Mountain on 23 March 2010 as part of a round of hills which also included Mullaghash and Barnes Top (see my comments on both of these hills for the first two stages of the route.) We approached Knockanbane Mt. by following a fence for 800 metres along the broad ridge that runs NW from Barnes Top. The summit lies approximately 70 metres SW of the fence on the flat boggy top at H631002 A and not at H651002 B as shown on the mountain views grid reference. This reference relates to a point some 2k to the E of Knockanbane Mt. All along the ridge there are splendid views S to the High Sperrins Ridge with Sawel prominent just across the valley. From the top we headed N with a slight touch of W to cross a fence and then went down the hillside to cross a stream at H6293601375 C before climbing steeply up the bank to a rough stone and muddy track. A left turn along the track brought us to a wooden gate which we passed through and then, further along, to two more metal gates. Further down we passed over a stone/cement bridge just before the wooden bridge that we had taken on our route to Mullaghash earlier in the day. From there it was a short walk out to the road and the starting point at C6239802490 D. Before going for this walk I had read Derry259's comments but declined to also include Sawel and Dart on our route! However one point of interest occurs. The hill after Mullaghash in Derry259's comments should read Barnes Top and not Knockanbane Mt as shown. Knockanbane Mt lies to the W of Barnes Top not the other way round. I suspect Derry259 and Old Brendan must have been celebrating St Patrick's Day with a touch or more of the hard stuff and got their hills mixed up !! Trackback:
