A restricted view of the Galtys with rising forests
Short Summary created by jackill,  18 Jul 2014
After a sharp bend park at a field gate(1 car only) at R94525 53427 A.
Go over the gate and immediately right up an old disused forestry entrance.After a few hundred meters you will reach a new forest track, turn right and follow this to R94565 52881 B, a crossroads, directly ahead look for a firebreak which will bring you to to R94538 52826 C.
Turn right along an overgrown but passable track to R94603 52698 D and then up a rough ride covered in sedge grass.
As the ground flattens out towards the top of the hill go left , skirting pools and rough ground to the summit trig pillar atop a mossy cairn.
The views are restricted due to foresty however the Galty and Slievenamuck ridges to the south are worth seeing from this viewpoint. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/678/comment/5437/

Whilst visiting Knockbane last weekend, this otherwise mundane summit did have an item of interest: at the base of the trig pillar was a small metal marker with the inscription "EI/G4WSB/P".
A quick google revealed this to be part of a project called Summits To The Air Database, a programme that encourages radio amateurs who enjoy hill walking to take their radios with them and operate them from mountain tops (see http://www.sota.org.uk).

Hopping the gate in front of my car at R94525 53427 A I turned right up an old disused forestry entrance where I was confronted with the dirty side of old Ireland , abandoned rubbish and a wrecked car. I hit a new forest track and followed this to R94565 52881 B , a crossroads and then scooted up a firebreak to R94538 52826 C, turned right along an overgrown but passable track to R94603 52698 D and then up a rough gap covered in sedge grass to the summit trig pillar atop a mossy cairn. The day wasn’t the best at this stage so no views to speak of, only the promise of the fault scalp of Slievenamuck and the towering Galtys beyond Aherlow that would fill the southern horizon on a clear day Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/678/comment/3565/

watch out for the trapdoor!!

Be warned that should you pay a visit to Knockbane that following your efforts through forest, heather gorse and other lovely obstacles make sure you don't fall into a substantial hole located in the cairn just behind the trig pillar. its almost covered over with vegetation and could spring a nasty surprise on an unsuspecting walker.
