eflanaga on Anglesey Mountain, 2007
by eflanaga  10 Nov 2007
Started this linear walk of the Cooley ridge from car park at pub right on the border at Cornamucklagh. IJ 11636 18668 A . Walked up road for about 1k and around to cross-road taking right turn uphill in the direction of Flagstaff so as to start the ascent from the start of the forested area. Following along its boundary wall, as much of the eastern side of the hill around this area is covered in heavy undergrowth. Made good speed up to point where wall turns west. From here broke across the open hillside and continued to make my way steadily towards the summit. The summit area is quite broad and their is a small cairn at IJ 10370 17688 B. However, a rocky area IJ 10567 17781 C about 40m south in direct line with the masts on Clermont Cairn appears to me to be a higher point. GPS reading here was 429m Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/699/comment/2895/
