Rough Walking in Untouched Wilderness
by ciarraioch  4 Nov 2012
Having previously been deterred by a series of very intimidating signs from ascending Cnoc Breac and Drom Doire Loch from the southern Kilgarvan/Mangertonbeg side, we set out instead from the Old Kenmare Road, parking just south of the bridge at V915 796 C. Armed with Paddy MacMonagle's 1980's vintage 'Mac's Guide to the Outback of Killarney', we headed in the Killarney direction until we reached the red roofed shed at the back of Cromaglan at around V929 808 D. We then headed cross country across the indistinct ridge taking in Stumpa Coimín, Loch na Beag Leice, Loch Gabhlán Coimín and eventually reaching Triangle Lake and Loch Caol near the summit. Very rough and isolated country. Took around 3 hours to reach the summit. Great views especially onto the Black Valley and the Reeks beyond. En route we encountered red deer on several occasions, their rutting season calls ringing across the hill side. We continued from the summit to Cnoc Breac and thence via the Loch na mBreac Dearg valley to Cnoc Ramhar and from there back to our starting point. Six tough hours overall.
