Unparalleled beauty
by Colin Murphy  24 Jul 2013
Parked at viewing point lay-by at L824 699 C, which is marked by a memorial to the Doolough Tragedy. We headed directly east for 1.5km and the ground starts to rise sharply almost immediately and is tough going - long grass hiding multiple holes etc. It eases somewhat after a couple of hundred metres and the terrain is more navigable, short grass and rocky underfoot. A few hundred metres before the summit it becomes steep once more, but is solid enough going. The top is quite well defined and marked by a small rocky outcrop. We climbed during the recent heatwave and it was like hillwalking in Spain (except a lot greener!). Deep blue skies to the horizon, the loughs below equally blue, and on such a day it is as magnificent as any scenery you'll find on the planet, with Doo Lough and Glencullin Lough sweeping the length of the valley below us, and from the summit Croagh Patrick rising through the haze to the north. It is interesting to note, geologically speaking, that the two loughs were evidently one at some point in the distant past, as can clearly be seen on a fine day, the material that now divides them having been swept down in a massive glacial slide from the Sruhauncullinmore Valley.
1.5 hours to the summit, although the heat slowed us down considerably. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/312/comment/15045/
