Wild and remote - Part Two
by David-Guenot  15 Apr 2014
Then started the long slog back to Knockowen along the Canshanavoe ridge. The snow soon stopped and melt immediately, and despite a few detours to avoid some peat hags, ponds and the usual boggy patches, the going was relatively easy until I reached the SW slopes of Knockeirky. It was now a matter of finding my way across long slabs of rocks, separated by narrow but soggy lines of grassy ground. Crossed a stream S of Cushnaficulla and began my second ascent of the day of Knockowen, on boggy, slippery ground first, then again across large bands of rock. Reached the top of the "Spine" about 1h15 after I had left pt. 523m on Canshanavoe. Next (and last) target of the day: Stookeennalackareha (see comment on this summit for end of the walk).
As a conclusion on Glenkeel Top: definitely to be taken as part of a longer route, and worth the detour, as the surroundings are beautiful and remote. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/749/comment/16011/
