Wet weather alternative?

From the minor cul-de-sac road to the SW. Parked about 400m S of the settlement at L8530 4820 A - this avoided the enclosed fields and gave access straight onto the open hillside initially heading NE before turning N on the steeper ground . It was 60 mins up and down. Views would be great but I had gales/rain and a cloudbase at 450m. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/828/comment/6533/

Glimpse from the north.

Coming down from the Devilsmother by its westerly spur, this was a view of Lissoughter (black and central), looking like it is a peak viewed over a heaving ocean.

The first and second intervening spurs are off Tonalee, to the right of the picture. The higher slope on the right is Knocknahillion making up part of the famous Maamochoige pass. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/828/comment/14709/

The Devil
by simon3  8 Jul 2012
Lissoughter provides a magnificent view of much of the Maamturks and the Bens. One aspect of the view of the former is a fascinating keyhole through the Turks at Maamochoige, familiar to any that have done the Maamturks Walk as the second lake.

Through this keyhole lies a summit visible on a good day as seen in Exhibit A to the left on the photo taken in 1998. But what is the top? The shape of the summit isn't at all obvious, or at least not to me.

Working with maps to figure this out is sort of tricky since the path to this summit goes over 3 OSi maps. So turning to one new reliable for this sort of research, Google Earth, I came up with the synthetic view, Exhibit B.
And yes, combining the Devilsmother with some of its spurs and ridges does lead to an outline similar to what you can see in the picture. So it's the Devilsmother, 14.1km at a bearing of 22 degrees. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/828/comment/14710/
