Route over Cnoc Iochtair, Skregmore, Stumpa Barr na hAbhann and Skregbeg via the Hydro Road.

This route covers the start of the Coomloughra Circuit. While I had not intended to complete the entire circuit, I had half a mind to take in Beenkeragh and part of the ridge out to the Bones as I have not summitted the Bones before. I had then planned to return across the ridge and out to Skregbeg. However, there was heavy snow above 800m and this combined with a very strong wind scuppered this idiotic plan.

Accordingly I headed towards Skregbeg almost directly from Stumpa Barr na hAbhann. On the north shoulders of Stumpa and Skregmore, the snow descended as low as 600m which dictated a careful descent; once over Skregbeg I descended to the corner of the Hydro Road and thence to the car.

This route would be a great introduction to the Reeks; it has plenty of bite and achieves a reasonable height but can be easily completed in a morning.
