The day started brightly in the bann valley, but in the mid-sperrins was quite dull. Travelled from Draperstown out past the Six towns and parked near Altbane bridge (H679882 J) where there was a bit of a laybay at side of road. Followed the nearby stream north along its course where it had carved out quite a channel. Found it easier going staying in the gorge as there was thick rushes to either side at the top of the banks. This ended after a while. Thinking i knew better(!) I had not taken proper bearings so headed on across open ground to what appeared to be the summit. Crossed another few streams and a fence, eventually coming to a fence running along the spine of the mountain. This was not near the summit however and had to then turn left and follow the fence west. This took about 30 mins to get there in this indirect way. Visibility was quite limited due to the dull day, an example being that Dart and Sawel were just visible to the NW, which you would easily expect to see from there. Visibility permitting not sure where it would be possible to see as the higher surrounding mountains would probably prevent views of Donegal etc. Antrim hills may be visible through the gap between Sl Gallion/Mulloughmore. Is quite an easy climb due to its gradual climb in height. A sense of being very expansive too. Didnt stay long before heading back. Headed straight back to Altbane picking the path of least resistance through large rush patches before rejoing the stream and then back to the road. Headed on round to Oughtmore(south one) planned to climb it but rain started. Ah well, for another day! Incidentally decent parking spot at forest gate near friars rock H 7 3 4/ 8 4 4if anyone fancies it! Looks like a good hour or more climb from there. Linkback:
