The Old Triangle.
by David-Guenot  25 Jan 2016
While starting ascending Caher W Top (in May 2015) on my way to complete the Coomloughra Horseshoe, I noticed that Cnoc Iochtair shows a delightful triangular face, but this impression disappears as you get higher. This summit has great views as it stands at the end of the ridge. The ascent is quite short if you are coming from Skregmore. As I wanted to avoid difficult terrain in the descent, I chose to zigzag down the grassy slopes (right of the photo), heading SSE first, then SSW to reach the track near the W end of Coomloughra Lough, instead of descending somewhere along the W or SW sides of the mountain. This was a good choice as I avoided some steeper and rockier ground, and I would highly recommend it -even though it adds a little bit of distance. It might be slippery when wet, but under dry conditions and after having completed the horseshoe, this was perfect for the legs !! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/78/comment/18429/
