First top climbed on the Comeragh Plateau
by Harry Goodman  27 Jul 2011
Climbed Coumfea West Top on Sat. 28 May 2011 as the first top in a round which also included Coumfea and Coumfea North Top. We parked at the Nire Valley Car Park S2760012800 A and walked NW down the road for about 500m to a gate and track on the left S2720013000 B. We followed the track down S to cross a river over a somewhat makeshift but sturdy bridge. Continuing S we followed the track up through a gate and out on to open moorland. Continuing S we went up more steeply along a trackless N spur of Coumfea W Top to around S2765009750 C where we gained the start of the plateau rim with fine views down to Lough Coumfea. From here we followed the rim around SE on easier ground to the unimpressive summit which sits back somewhat from the rim and is marked by a few stones atop and among the peat hags. The flat terrain is such that I suspect many walkers (as evidenced by a group in front of us) simply follow around the plateau rim and do not go in search of a "high point" on the flat peat hagged moorland. Views down to the loughs far below and out N and W across the Nire Valley to Knockanaffrin, Slievenamon, the Galtees and Knockmealdowns were superb. To complete our walk to Coumfea W Top we could have returned to the start by our outward route. However we opted to continue SE around the plateau rim in search of the next top in our circuit, Coumfea. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/102/comment/6439/
