David-Guenot: Track 4186 in area near Shehy More, Shehy/Knockboy (Ireland)
An alternative route to Shehy More
Length: 6.8km, Creator time taken: 1h58m, Ascent: 332m,
Descent: 335m

Places: Start at W14018 60962, Shehy More, Shehy More SW Top, end at Start
Logged as completed by 1

Looking for a short way to climb Shehy More but put off by the landowner's sign at the beginning of the track to the W, I drove on and noticed the forest had been felled and the forest road could provide an easy access. Plenty of space to park at the starting point. Not much difficulty encountered indeed as there were only two short felled sections to cross (plus the ground was pretty dry). Be aware that the area has been replanted though, so not sure what it will be like in a few years. The last bit of ascent to the main top was made along a fence on very steep ground, but a gentler line of ascent could surely be found. The detour to the SW Top is worth for the views, plus I found the going rather pleasant on the way back.

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, a rough and often inaccurate estimate, suggests a time of 1h 55m + 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.
