Stories, information and comments from Leinster Mount climbers
Story by Laurence from Kilkenny, Ireland, submitted on 17/09/2007
First rode this climb on a warm June bank holiday in 2005 coming from near Kilkenny. This route is more difficult travelling to the Nine Stones than coming from the Bunclody side, passing the Rathanna / Tomduff junction you get a little sample of what to come. After reaching the Nine Stone’s car park you turn right across the cattle grid into a shaded forest passage where it starts to kick up straight away. 3k from the summit the views of the Antenna can be deceptive the closer you get to it the further away its seems to be, sections of the last 2k averages 15% will have you praying for more gears if not wishing for the legs of a mountain goat. On a clear day the views are pretty the Irish Sea is visible from the summit. Care should be taken on the sloping roads due to the narrow passages and traffic including wandering sheep. Climbing up Mount Leinster is optional coming down is compulsory!
