This is the second phase of my plan to complete all the mountains of the Glenbeigh Horseshoe, having climbed the two at the opposite end last year. I had seen on the maps that there is a very good farm road leading right into the foot of Colly and I planned to park here. However, I discovered that there is a locked gate at 51.9904, 9.9051 which meant I had an extra 5 or 6 kms to walk! Oh well...Really good route, though on the day I was there the visibility was limited by low cloud on the high tops and hazy conditions lower down.
