First step to Stumpa Duloigh
Short Summary created by Peter Walker,  21 Jun 2012
Knockaunanattin W Top lies just north of the impressive Ballaghbeama Gap and is the first eminence on an sprawling-but-entertaining ridge that culminates in Stumpa Duloigh.

Starting from the Gap at 755781 A an ascent should take no more than 25 minutes to the top. Head north up the slope that constitutes the blunt ridgeline. The ascent climbs over numerous easy benches (especially in the lower reaches) before reaching an extensive summit of bumps and rocks and puddles with one more substantial lough: the summit is the top to the right of this. The views are excellent for such an overlooked top: Mullaghanattin is magnificent and the ridge leading to Stumpa looks alluringly wild and romantic.

Peter Walker on Knockaunanattin W Top, 2009
by Peter Walker  19 May 2009
Given the number of visits the main top has had I find it hard to believe that the English invasion (all two of us) of Knockaunanattin W Top constituted its first MV ascent, but never mind. Having sat in the car at Ballaghisheen under copiously lachrymose skies and buffeted by an impressive south-westerly, the quick trot north up from Ballaghbeama (755781) (taking about 45 minutes for the round trip) saved something from the day. The gap itself is a very impressive defile well worth the visit even if you don't climb anything, but the ascent of the W Top puts up little resistance save for a few of the benches typical of the Irish South-West running at right angles to the very blunt ridgeline. The GPS-toting half of the party concluded that the top to the right of the little lake on the summit was highest even if other candidates look just as likely to the naked eye, but all of them have excellent views for such a minor effort. Mullaghanattin looks quite imposing even by its own standards, and the pictured view along the ridge to the main top and Stumpa Duloigh would have been rather inspiring on a less wild sort of day...

Little Known but Handy Jaunt in Wild Country

Makes a handy 2.5-3 hour walk along with Knockaunattin and Stumpa Duloigh SW. Great views. Just climb north from Ballaghbeama as described above and follow the ridge from Knockaunanattin W Top to Knockaunanattin itself and from there to Stumpa Duloigh SW Top. The return route from the latter can be shortened by following an obvious straight 'passage' to the south of the main ridge, thereby bypassing the first two summits.
