The route went by forestry tracks up from King’s Yard and then dropped down to the fast-flowing Behanagh River, from where the group of twelve climbed to Knockaterriff, aided by a following easterly wind.  A chilly lunch was eaten on the leeward side, with some shelter from the arched construction.  On over Knockaterriff Beg, and a stiff climb in a cold cross-wind to the top of Lyracappul.  The going underfoot was firm, the Galty wall provided some respite from the chilling wind and the group continued to the foot of Galtymore.  For the first time that day the compass came out to get us back directly to King’s yard via Knockduff.  A very satisfying day’s walk.
