Steep Ascent From The North
by Aidy  15 Jul 2014
Parked at the GAA pitch at the western end of Lough Finn, and took an overgrown lane along the right hand side of the pitch to the foot of the mountain. I went straight up from there, heading for the highest point I could see, although the summit is hidden from this side, and lies well back to the south. It was a steep climb, but not too boggy today, and the ground is well grazed by sheep, so no high vegetation to deal with. After about 500m the ground became less steep, and I entered a broad area, with a little cairn off to my right, and many small loughs. There was another, short, rocky rise to climb to reach the now visible summit, marked by a trig pillar. This is part of a long ridge, so I also wandered past the summit a little to the west. The whole summit area has great character, with rocky terrain, little pools, ridges, and several loughs. The views are also breathtaking, with most of Donegal visible. To the northwest, over Lough Finn, I could see the Derryveagh Mountains. To the north I could just make out Tory Island. North west was Croaghegly hill and Aran Island beyond that. West was the area around Portnoo, and Slievetooey and Slieveleague. South was the main Bluestack ridge. A tough enough walk from this direction due to the steep sides, but well worth it for the views. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/289/comment/17553/
