Climb it if you must !!
by Harry Goodman  26 Jul 2010
Walked up to this hill on Fri 23 July 2010 as one of four smaller Sperrins tops being sought out on a drive around the area. It lies to the N of the B46 going E from Gortin village and is accessed by a minor road running N from H578835 D to a T junction where the parking place is some 300 metres to the right along a minor unsurfaced road. At the outset I must record my sincere thanks to three5four0 for finding and giving co-ordinates for a suitable place to park H5640684463 E, this was invaluable. The route we followed was the same as three5four0. After walking W along the minor road/track for about 1k we turned right at H5743184362 F up a farm track. We followed this up to a farm gate marked by two high red (July 2010) metal posts and then on up to a second gate near the crest of the hill. Once over we turned right along the track and followed it to a wooden gate which we climbed over and then continued on the track to the high point of the hill. This was along the fence line on our right and marked (probably more by accident than design!) by a high fence post much more robust than the others in the fence line H5790485112 G. For anyone who cares to try it would be possible to climb up and down directly to the top from the parking place and save some 2k in distance but the going would be heavy over clumps of long grass, rushes and a number of barbed wire fences. The route up and down following the tracks was only 4.2k. This is a very easy short walk for anyone wishing to tick Crocknamoghill of the mv Sperrins list but otherwise it is a hill of little interest. Linkback:
