Long Back Rim of Cummeengeara
Short Summary created by CaptainVertigo,  29 Aug 2014
Eskatarriff sprawls along the back of the Pocket of Cummeengeara from Coomacloghane to Lackabane. It's East Top sits provocatively on its giant eastern shoulder. As with most of the horseshoe the exterior slope is gentle enough: the interior is steep. Nearly all walkers will encounter Eskatarriff as part of the circuit of the Pocket and will love the sense of being on the rim, seeing both sides on the way. The gradient of the Eskatarriff section of the walk is generally slight. The ground can be either peaty in places, or rocky. Views abound in all directions. Getting there will generally involve a trip from Kenmare to Lauragh. Route options include an ascent over Tooth Mountain from either V75426 55335 A or V76724 57296 B with an easy traverse of Coomacloghane. The alternative eastern route is over Lackabane from either the carpark in the Pocket at V75426 55335 A or from V76724 57296 B. (Note that the Pocket start at V75426 55335 A includes an access/ parking charge of €4 as well as a very steep ascent.)
There is another option: one can continue from Lauragh to Ardgroom by car and take a left to the northern tip of Glanbeg Lough. Park there at V70103 53800 C and ascend the obvious slope to the col on the northern slope of Eskatarriff. Of course, with two cars, one can mix and match the above routes.
