This was the great day that was . . . on the Knockmealdown Crossing (or A Walk) 2015 as hosted by the Peaks Mountaineering Club.
This year's Chllenge Walk was traversed from East to West.
Starting at Goatenbridge, then heading towards the Liam Lynch Monument and then onwards over the ridge of the Knockmealdown Mountains.
The Vee (Bay Lough Car Park) occurs at around the half-way mark in distance - yet at this stage (travelling Est to West) near on two third of the day's ascent has been completed.
This year the walk finished out with a gentle end down into The Community Hall, Ballyporeen.
The weather on this year's Challenge (2015) had biting cold temperatures that lended to the most magnificent of views!
Jim Holmes.

NOTE: ALL information such as Ascent, Length and Creator time taken etc should be regarded as approximate. The creator's comments are opinions and may not be accurate or still correct.
Your time to complete will depend on your speed plus break time and your mode of transport. For walkers: Naismith's rule, an approximate though often inaccurate estimate, suggests a time of 9h 21m + time stopped for breaks
NOTE: It is up to you to ensure that your route is appropriate for you and your party to follow bearing in mind all factors such as safety, weather conditions, experience and access permission.
