by sinbadw  21 Oct 2004
This was the first hill we took in the circuit of the Nire Valley. We parked at the lay-by and walked down the road aways before turning left onto a track, over a bridge (of sorts) and thence over some stepping stones, followed by a sharp left to get out onto the mountain. You can see from the track that we then made our way pretty much straight on up to Coumfea West Top, skirting along the edge of the corrie to get some fantastic views of the lakes below. A small cairn maked the summit. The accompanying visualisation shows our path (roughly, forgive the section where we appear to walk on thin air, we were checking out the "sean bhean ag caitheabh tobac"). This was generated from Nasa SRTM data, a satelite image without colour correction and the gps log of our walk. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/102/comment/1263/
