If you go down to the woods today!
by eamonoc  5 Apr 2014
Climbed Friday 4/4/2014 in the Company of Binnion Champion Fergalh. started at S66105 43113 H. Followed good forest track uphill until progress was halted by many fallen trees, headed into forest on right for about 100mts to avoid these. Then went left uphill until a forest track higher up was encountered. Crossed this and headed into forest again crossed an old stone wall into a large area of moss covered trees, it took about 5 mins of searching to find the trig, but like an apparition it suddenly appeared in all its glory. Note there were a huge amount of fallen trees in the lower part of the woods. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/882/comment/15965/
