Rock slope failure debris field (Expand pics)
Aghla Beg ridge
In response to a query from jsramsey1491 about the prominent ridge north from Aghla Beg, although this appears to be a glacial deposit it is in fact bedrock (quartzite) according to the Geological Survey. Its curious form was probably the result of being eroded on the east and west sides by two separate glaciers as they flowed northwards from the corries of the Aghla mountains.

There are other interesting glacial features on Aghla Beg (and other nearby mountains), one of the which are rock slope failures. These form hummocky ground at the base of corries and there is a prominent one on the east side of Aghla Beg. These rock slope failures were formed by the sudden failure of the rock face (having between fractured by the freeze/thaw action of water) when the buttressing effect of the ice was removed upon de-glaciation.

Tonelagee NE Top: Barely recognisable as a separate top
Colin Murphy 21 hours ago.
This is a handy one to bag on the way to Tonelagee, but it is so nondescript that many a walker has by-passed it without realising it is a top in itself. The summit is a broad, grassy area with no...

Tonelagee: The perfect beginner's mountain
