Hello Its good to be back!
by three5four0  29 Aug 2011
After an operation that quite literally left me with half the knee I used to have, with over 5 months off work and a lot of physiotherapy later I was finally given the OK to return to the hills. So it was off to Dingle for my mountaineering clubs easter meet for some quality ale, Guinness and hopefully a clutch of new hills.

We started our route for Brickany in Anascaul, following the Dingle Way to the road junction at Maum (the D.W. leaves the road here and follows a lane) . At roughly 61910 01906 A there is a locked gate, climb over and follow a wet forestry track, which shortly turns right, then left and right again, following the edge of the plantation bringing you to the edge of the forest and a rough and faint path & fence. Cross and follow the fence - along an old wall boundary - (on the right hand side) all the way to the top, recross the fence to the summit cairn, well several cairns probable built with the remains of what looks like a ruined chambered cairn.

Return the way of ascent, we continued on along the Dingle Way to Inch Strand for some Ice Cream on the beach where the temp reached 29 degrees, not bad for April!

The directions for this route were given to me by a local farmer, he also said I could approach along the tracks on the north-west side of the hill as well, but that there was a lot of electric fencing there. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/874/comment/6493/
