Another very popular summit in the Dublin Mountains. Having previously combined it with Tibradden, i decided to have a go at combining it with Kilmashoge (not currently listed on MV). The route is straightforward at first, following the Wicklow way to near the summit of Two Rock Mountain. After leaving the Wicklow way to follow the well worn track up to Two Rock, descend north east before turning left (west) to follow a good track alongside the forest back to meet the Wicklow way. The obvious route up to Kilmashoge would be to head up from the col with Two Rock. However a sign forbidding entry to walkers on the farmland is clear so i followed the Wicklow way back to a point where i could leave it to head south west up the slope of Kilmashoge. Be warned - this is not easy and is a classic example of the kind of difficult routes I subject myself to. The going is easy at first (up a steep slope) but you must eventually negotiate impossible gorse and heather to reach the summit. After this it gets interesting - head directly south into the impenetrable forest and keep the faith. After getting lashed in the face with conifers, and stabbing yourself off countless sharp branches, all while bent over or crawling and eating dirt for 15 minutes, you will find a rough track that will spit you back out onto the Wicklow Way. At least when I passed all the casual strollers in their Sunday best or sporting immaculate and spotless outdoor gear, I gave them pause for thought as this smelly, bedraggled and fearsome mountain man passed by!
