A hill to enjoy but save it for a fine day.
by Harry Goodman  30 Oct 2012
This truly is a small hill to enjoy. I climbed it on 22 Oct 12 and, having been there, was surprised that none of the three mv members who had been there before me thought it worthy of comment. Although small in height it is nonetheless a substantial hill. I parked at B8557807434 A beside, but not blocking, the entrance to a track leading into an old quarry. I walked 200m E along the R252 to B8572007414 G where I turned right and followed waymark posts across a patch of trackless peaty ground for some 500m to join a rough but substantial track at B8551806928 H just S of L Ahatta. I then continued S along the track to its high point B8554606628 I about 1k from the start of the walk. Turning right off the track I started a long (1.7k) but gradual climb up SW to the top. On the way up I passed a cairn (Pt 283) about 1k along B8479206036 J which would act as a checkpoint in poor visability. Continuing up W I then reached the N end of the rocky summit ridge B8425906016 D where a turn left (S), obvious in clear weather but more difficult in mist, led me along for 350m to the summit, marked by a cairn and trig pillar B8411205744 K. On the day I was there I had a beautiful, clear, 360 degree sweep around NW past the Derryveagh/Glendowan Mts. then S to the Bluestacks and finishing along the western Atlantic seaboard from Slievetooey to Aranmore Is. A short walk of 5.5k, 195m ascent, easily completed in two hours but save it for a fine day with good visability. Anyone with a need for a greater burst of energy could consider combing this walk with a walk to Crovehy from the same starting point and following the way marked way N shown on the OSi Sheet 1 3rd Edition.
