No more mystery - Mystic Ridge, Brandon Mount
In Munsters Mountains, this climb is jazzed up and made to sound like one big crass ramp on the upper section. Well it is grassy but the description in the guide book should by no means put anyone off trying this route, the guide book is afterall one person's opinion of the route.
Back In feb of this year we had a small bit of a cold snap and me and to friends decided to go have a tackle at a couple of ridges on the Dingle pennisula. The day we had for mystic was nice and cold and the rains were gladly ona day off. The first pitch of this savage ridge is a slap in the face, no messing straight into it. Its a reall nice first pitch, the second has a little step on it and after that its all easy scrambling till the start of the second section. If you have every seen mystic ridge there is no mistaking the grassy flat that marks the mid point of the route. Here there is a choice to be made, go up the rock face at about VS or take the gully which on the day we had it was frozen and covered slightly with snow, was at about Grade 3 scottish. Naturally since two of us, me included, were itching to try out new crampons we took the gully. Fine protection on the right hand side to a great bealy at the top of this, which were the pic was taken.
After this it was all bits of crag and lots of grass, even though we had it frozen I have done it again recently not frozen and the crass areas are all manageable. There are a few options on the later part of the second section for some harder options, which we were taking, unfortuneately I had a little slip and ended up bouncing and falling back down 20m of rope. But I managed to lead out the last 3 pitches of the climb with nothing more than a sprained ankle.
All in all however this is one fine ridge well worth having a stab at it. I know that I will be heading back to do it numerous time more!!!
