Well worth the detour out and back
by Harry Goodman  27 May 2012
I climbed Keelogyboy SW Top on 5 May 2012 as the second top in a round of hills in the Castlegal Group. (For earlier part of the route see my comments on Keelogyboy Mt.) From the top of Keelogyboy Mt. we headed SW with the SW Top looking tantilisingly close but seperated from the main top by a short but steep descent down to a col G769386 B and then up W to the prominent rounded summit G7677138698 C. Views from the top were extensive. W, beyond Sligo, was Knocknarea with it's distinctive rounded megalithic cairn, while NW were two of the tops to be visited later in the day, Cope's Mt and Crockauns, backed by the Ben Bulbin/Truskmore massif. To the S, twinkling in the sun, was Lough Gill. Sitting there looking around you become very aware that these small hills could well pose navigational difficulties in mist where accurate route finding, to avoid their many sharp cliff faces, would be essential. In this regard when retracing our way back down to the col we noted a distinctive gully on the sharp W face of Keelogyboy Mt. and used it as our return route for climbing back up and over the hill. As this would be a safer route down in mist the top starts at G7709738634 D should anyone wish to use it. Once up we continued NE for some 500m to the col with the NE Top above and S of Stramore Lough before continuing across to a gravel track for access to Keelogyboy NE Top. Alternatively had we wished to shorten the walk at this point we could have followed the track down N past the lough and then back to the start at G7626940300 E Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/751/comment/6820/
