Mongorry Hill
by three5four0  18 Apr 2010
After climbing 4 other single MV listed hills today, we thought we could squeeze Mongorry Hill in on our way home through Raphoe. We parked off the minor road between Raphoe and Glenmaquin by the masts at 235049 I. There is enough space for a couple of cars here, without blocking access to the Masts and your car would not be noticed from the busy road.

Followed simon3 's description past the locked gates and along the side of the mature forest, the route is full of tree stumps, hidden drainage channels, dead brambles and young trees, but is not unduly difficult. The reason for this is, i think, that the under growth, trees, bushes & brambles etc, have not started growing yet, as spring has arrived late this year. Puts me in mind to visit that hill by Forkill which suffers the same problems of access as Mongorry Hill, before the new plant growth starts.

The summit cairn is hidden by a small group of trees, the trig point could be in there, particularly if its a Colby one, or indeed it could be a chambered grave as the area round it looks, well round. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/969/comment/4632/
