An easy pleasant walk and my 400th mv top to boot !
by Harry Goodman  26 Jul 2010
Climbed this hill on Fri 23 July 2010. I parked at a forest park entrance H4785382224 F on a minor road of the B48 between Omagh and Gortin. Having read the comments already posted on the site I anticipated some difficulty in route finding especially as my OSNI Sheet 13 (1999) did not show a track through the forest to the top. I should not have worried as the good quality track we were on led us unerringly up to the communications mast with one or two check points on the way. The first was some 800m into the walk H4844882806 G where we turned left, rather than continue straight ahead, up an equally good track with trees on the left and cleared forestry on the right. Further up the track turned left passing a lesser peaty track and continued on up to the communication installation at H4788183913 H, three sides of which are enclosed by the trees. The spot height, as already idenified by simon3, lies on a small hummock along the western edge of the security fence about one or two metres out (west) from the wire at H4785483914 I. This said the top was not the best vantage point for this hill, surrounded as it was by trees on three sides, this was reserved for a small ring contour at virtually the same height but 200 metres west along a fence line at H4783383913 J. The views from this little hillock were simply splendid. NE was the main Sperrins ridge while NW across Balix Hill and Owenreagh Hill (two of the hills to be climbed later in the day) I could clearly identify the Donegal Highlands and further W the Bluestacks. On the return walk down the track the bulk of Mullaghcarn was clearly seen across Gortin Glen. If taking this walk, on the way down at H4824882666 K, be sure to continue straight on and not take the natural turn of the track down left. Straight on and you are back to the start after 500 metres whereas the turn down left will, after 700 metres, lead down to the B48 and a further 1.5k back to the start. This was a pleasant, easy walk of some 5.3k which I included with three other Sperrins hills later the same day and memorable for me as it marked the 400th mv listed mountain/hill that I have climbed. Since climbing it I have had sight of the OSNI Sheet 13 (2010) which now, unlike my earlier edition, shows the track I followed to the top !. Trackback:
