The marking of Tonduff North and Tonduff South as separate hill-names on the Discovery map does not seem justified, as there is only a single peak.   Tonduff is the 210th highest summit in Ireland.

davema on Tonduff, 2007
by davema  8 Jan 2007
The usual Trio set off from Crone Car park about 10.30am, following the wicklow way markers through the forest, past the magnificent views of Powerscourt Waterfall and through the deforested area to a single lone tree beside an old wall. At this point, we turned north-ish, following the very eroded track to the top of Maulin. Maulin was windswept but busy, having met numerous walkers on the way up.
Decided to press on to try and get as much of the open hillside covered before the inevitable rain set in. Crossed the bog to the unnamed 593 spot height on the Harveys map, and then onwards and upwards to the Tonduffs. At the point, the rain started to spill, so the heavy rain gear came out, and stayed on for the rest of the trip.
The summit of Tonduff is a desolate place indeed, beautiful in it's own bizarre way (see photo). However, as the cloud was falling fast, it was mainly desolate on this particular occasion. We stuck a kisu over our heads and had lunch in relative luxury, then made a quick pace off the top, heading northwest for the stonecutters glen. The descent into the glen was very tiring due to the waist/chest high heather, probably avoided by heading to join the glen at a higher point than we did. However, we did see numerous Sika deer in their grey winter coat - in fact, we saw so many we were afraid of literly stepping on one in the undergrowth!!
Eventually, we reached the steam in the glen, and going was easier over dead bracken. We looked for a path back into the forest, but ended up just following the river all the way down to the tarmac road and following it back to the carpark. All in all, we were out for about 4.5 hours - a good walk, with nice views until the cloud descended Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/206/comment/2580/
