Shehy Mountain from Tomies Wood
by chelman7  13 Apr 2022
The new car park at the start of Tomies Wood allows a route to Shehy Mountain different to the usual approach from Purple Mountain. Tough and steep in parts, this is more than compensated for by the fabulous views on all sides. See track 4655 for the route we took. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/68/comment/23481/
