Harry Goodman on Carrigatuke, 2009
by Harry Goodman  13 Oct 2009
As Carrigatuke is one of a few hills remaining on the list of 100 nearest to my home I decided to climb it to-day. Aware of pdtempan's comments I was prepared for a hill that would not demand much effort especially as, unlike pdt, I did not do a lengthy cycle out from Newry as a warm up! This said I was not prepared for a complete wasted journey, in my case by car. Coming from Armagh on the B31 to-wards Newtownhamilton I turned right at a small crossroads into Viewpoint Road, signed for Few's Forest and Carrigatuke Viewpoint H920318 A and drove around the south slopes of the hill to second right turn H906313 B and followed directions to H9020331736 C which is the start of a short road up to Carrigatuke summit. Unfortunately quite a nice direction sign at this point has been smashed into many pieces. Clearly one is encouraged to drive up this road to the top (viewpoint) crowned by a large car park right beside the trig pillar. For my part I walked up the 300 metres or so and "summited" in less than 5 minutes at H9034532092 D. As a view point this is a fine spot but as a hill to climb, unless you want to tick it off a list, give it a miss. I could not even suggest an extension to make a worthwhile walk. To save pdtempan the bother of another trip up this hill to take a photo I have attached one. Fortunately I also climbed Croslieve, near Forkhill, making my round trip of over 90 miles very worthwhile. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/881/comment/4203/
