Accesed via same route as 'thisbliss' from Altbane Bridge. Had a friendly chat with the farmer/owner (who was surveying turf he had cut on Friday last) on the way up. Spent a few minutes trying to figure out the exact location of a new windfarm in the distance, finally settling on a hill near Carrickmore/Pomeroy. As previous contributor suggests the ground is very uneven once you leave the track, although I was able to follow a reasonable line alongside the top of the 'burn' before turning towards the unmarked summit. Expansive views with Cuilcagh, the Cooleys, Mournes all clearly visible. Great views across to the high Sperrins including Sawel & Dart (see pic). Descended by retracing steps as it looked to much of a drag (and time was against me) to work towards the next target - Spaltindoagh. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/759/comment/3840/
