New Comment: Fabulous stand-alone peak
by markmjcampion  21 Nov 2020
I wasn't in the mood for a big hike (or even a small one) but i forced myself out of the car at L97459 48181 C and ended up having a great couple of hours in a little-visited part of Connemara. I really enjoyed every minute of the solitude, wind and the overwhelming multi-directional views!
Walked along the Slí Connemara and when ! crossed the bridge I followed a feint trail to the left which followed the river north until I came to a fence. Having crossed the fence, I then headed NE over initially wet but navigable terrain but as soon as I started climbing it was very dry underfoot. Had fun scrambling up some of the rocks although this is easily avoidable if its not your thing. As written about in the rest of the comments the views are par excellence and it really is awesome when you hit the main southerly spur and first see the view east over Lough Corrib!!
I decided to do a bit of a loop while I was at it and descended to the road by the reverse of the route descibed in the short summary and had a pleasant walk to the car to finish off. About 6.5km with 385m ascent...took me 2.5 hours including stops. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/846/comment/21479/
