A small but typical Bluestack summit
by Harry Goodman  4 Nov 2013
On Tues. 22 Oct 2013 I left my car in a large Car Park/Picnic Area on the left side of the N15 (coming from Ballybofey) at H0422887373 A and walked back along the road (NE) for about 100 metres to a wide stone and gravel forestry track on the left side. I followed this track gently up through the trees and then out along more open ground with fine views across to Barnesmore, Croaghconnellagh, Croaghnageer and Brown's Hill. After some 2.6 km into the walk I re-entered the forest at H0410888987 D and then some 700 metres further along came to a wide forest ride on the left H0427289667 B going up diagonally from the track into the trees. I followed it up over long clumpy grass for a further 300 metres to H0433889959 E from where I could see the open hillside a short distance away to my left. Passage through the trees was easy and very soon led out to the open ground from where I headed up WNW directly to the top. Initially I climbed up over trackless marshy ground and long grass and then, nearer the top, across some rock bands to gain the wide rock and heather covered summit area so typical of many tops in this range of hills The high point was marked by a small cairn atop a large rocky outcrop at H0346390181 C. Views W and N were restricted by the higher ridges of the Bluestacks. Rather than return by my outward route I decided to make for the nearby summit of Cloghervaddy which lay to the W across a shallow, barren little valley.
