A beautiful loop walk taking in Sugarloaf, Lobawn, Table Mountain West Top and Table Mountain. From Table Mountain, instead of going straight to the Black Banks Pass, I diverted to the Air Crash Site from 1957. It can be difficult to find the site as the terrain slopes downhill and the remains of the plane are hidden behind a peat hag, so it's not immediately visible when you're coming down. If we want to trust the GPS I had with me, the site is at the Easternmost point of the recorded track, at about 53.016852, -6.470000 and an elevation of 640m. The direct approach from Table Mountain includes progressing over some deep fissures, whilst the approach from the Black Banks Pass is easier, so it might be better to approach from the latter and than retrace the steps. Thanks to other users on Mountainview for posting details on the tragic story behind this air crash.
