eflanaga on Stoompa East Top, 2009

Stoompa East top was the last of five summits in a circuit which began at the viewpoint at Gortagullane (IV984 849 A) and included Glenacappul Top, Mangerton North Top, Mangerton & Stoompa. As Simon3 suggests the almost 4.5k trek from Stoompa East Top is hard going at times. For my part I descended relatively easily down its northern slope with great views over Lough Guitane before traversing a few minor gullies on Stoompa's northern aspect to approach Lough Garagarry from the east. On this, the return leg of the circuit, I crossed the Owgariff River just below the mouth of Lough Garagarry (IV995 835 B). From here, I followed a track (shown on the Harvey Superwalker map) for a short distance but this eventually veers north-east rather than the direction I wanted to go (north-west) so I struck out due west across uneven and changing ground (bog to heather) and was gladdend to finally rejoin the Tooreencormick track (at the gate). Ten minutes later I reached the road for the 1k+ walk back to the car. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/258/comment/3728/
