Mullaghnarakill direttissimo - pics anybody?
Hi, I'm doing some research into the names of the peaks in the Glenbeigh Horseshoe. I'm particularly interested in Mullaghanrakill. I climbed this peak about 5 years ago with a couple of friends by the obvious ridge coming from the NE which rises up between the lakes of Coomnacronia and Coomaglaslaw and makes straight for the summit. I mustn't have had my camera with me that day, as the scenery was very dramatic and the weather fine, but I've no pics to show for it. I notice that nobody has commented on this route on the page for Mullaghnarakill. I guess a lot of people do this peak as part of a larger horseshoe walk starting with Drung Hill and coming down to Coomasaharn via Coomreagh or continuing on to Coomacarrea and Meenteog. But I'm surely not the only one who has spotted this striking ridge and felt compelled to take up the challenge. pdonnelly points out that a short, sharp circuit of Coomaglaslaw is also a possibility, and one I would throughly recommend. So has anybody any pics of this ridge? There is supposed to be a peak in this area called an Fhiacail, i.e. 'the tooth' and I'm wondering if it could be here...
