Start of a blitz of climbs for gribboneer-of-the-year
by paddyobpc  25 Jan 2017
In December of 2016 we heard about gribboneer-of-the-year http://www.highpointireland.com/gribboneer-of-the-year.html and with a good few Gribbons already done as part of the The County High Point Challenge we decided to look at the 186 Gribbons (http://www.highpointireland.com/the-gribbon-list.html) and focus on some of the more local ones to try and be in with a chance in the competition. Knocknaskagh (#Knocknaskagh427m) was one not too far away from us and even though we had never climbed this one before we now set out to have it climbed 4 times (the maximum allowed for gribboneer-of-the-year) before the end of December. We followed the route described by Jackill on here. Please note the location labelled A on the map and referred to as“Castleblagh forestry entrance” does not have any markings or signs and shouldn’t be mixed up with the main forestry entrance just outside Ballyhooly. Dillon(dillonkdy) and myself went to the summit on Dec 9th, 16th, 24th and 30th. It is a short walk considering it is the highest point in the Nagles, just 3.5Km up and back our fastest time of the 4 was just under 45 mins with 144m height climbed. For more pictures and details check out Dillon’s website at https://dillons32chpchallenge.github.io/progress/index.html Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/702/comment/18830/
