eflanaga on Drumnalifferny Mountain, 2006
by eflanaga  20 Apr 2006
(Climbed April 17th) This was the first of five peaks in a Slieve Snaght ‘horseshoe circuit’. Started the walk at Old Dunlewey Church (93022 18936 A) and following the flow of Cró Nimhe river along Cronaniv Burn through the beautiful Poisioned Glen. I had intended to take the steep, scramble route up on to Cró Nimhe, but having a head cold I didn’t feel up to it, opting to climb the south-western slopes of the Glen at 94322 16936 B. Waving to a fellow walker across the valley (the only human seen until I returned to my car some 7 hours later) I turned back north-west at first and ploughed steadily upwards following a herd of deer who evidently thought I was in pursuit. After climbing approximately 150m I turned south towards my first destination. The ground was fairly wet after all the recent rain making the first 450m of this climb a little difficult at times. Eventually, the steep upper north-western slopes of Drumnaliffernn beckoned and I clambered up and over emerging breathless and thirsty at a spot height south west of Lough Maumbeg (93788 16046 C). I dropped down to the small locheen just below Drumnaliffernan summit. From the locheen it’s a short climb up onto the summit of Drumnaliffernan. The clouds had cleared by this time allowing wonderful panoramic views around this beautiful part of Donegal. Errigal, the Aghlas & Muckish stood grand and sentinel like to north, west lay Crocknafarragh (a target for another day). The Rosses area and the island of Arran Mór were also clearly visible. Rising to my southwest the large dome-like mound of Slieve Snaght with its namesake lough immediately below it (Picture taken from above gulley described by Ricky K below). Directly south was my next target Bingorms with the Croaghgorm Mts visible in the distance beyond. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/283/comment/2284/
