An energy-sapping exercise in masochism.
by Colin Murphy  21 Sep 2020
The was the third top in a three-summit circular walk involving Tievedockaragh and Finlieve, and by far the most unpleasant. Having bagged Finlieve I backtracked to J227 217 K leaving me with a trek of 2.5km in a SW direction. It seemed straightforward enough except that for the entire journey the landscape was covered in knee-length grasses and heather, and the ground was extremely uneven. The final ascent of about 90m climbing would normally take me about 15 minutes were the going underfoot good, this took me almost an hour of energy-draining leg lifting, tumbling and sinking in boggy patches - and this was after a week of dry, sunny weather. Decent views at the top, but one purely for the baggers, and if you must do it, avoid this approach! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/735/comment/20896/
