jackill on Knocknaskagh N Top, 2007
by jackill  3 Sep 2007
I have to admit I was beaten by this mountain.Not by its massive height, but by its surrounding forestry , my tired legs which were worn nearly up to the knees after 19 kms walking, and the promise of a pint in Alberts bar in Fermoy. We left this 'til last on a circuit of the Nagles summits and thought "we'll pick it up on the way home".
Armed with no less that 3 gps units, 2 compasses ,maps and photos from trailmaster which clearly showed a track to the summit we arrived at a dead end 700 meters from the summit our way blocked by dense forest. After 30 minutes of cursing and swearing and debating and wandering in circles the thirst won! There is no way, short of crawling under the branches of a very dense forest to access this summit from the Knocknaskagh/Seefin side, or if there is its well hidden.
I will be back! Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/794/comment/2813/
