lovely, moderate ridge walk from Knocksheegowna then Knockanaffrin and down by the "Gap". Very little erosion. Lots of ravens (and snipe in the bog below). Magic during the hot-hot weather of Aug 2003! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/74/comment/610/

I went up the gap in bright sunshine in October and it is a gentle enough climb to the top. I had my lunch in the warm sunshine overlooking the lake below. However once I got back to the plateau to go back down the gap it was blowing a very loud and unpleasant Force6/7 and it also was very cold--- a classic of how conditions on a hill can change in minutes. It is a lovely walk and I look forward to doing it again. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/74/comment/714/

During the Comeragh Challenge in July I traversed from Knocksheegowna to Knockanaffrin but due to weather conditions and low cloud I had no opportunity to enjoy the view from the ridge particularly out to the east over steeply sloping ground. However on a recent trip to Slievnamon on a clear day I got the chance to look south west to the Comeraghs and see the impressive view I missed in July. This photo taken from Slievenamon shows Knocksheegowna to the right and Knockanaffrin to the left. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/74/comment/1994/
