pplsgod on Tonelagee, 2009
by pplsgod  23 Aug 2009
Climbed this mountain on the 22nd August 2009. Weather conditions were absolutely perfect on the day. From OS Map No. 56 I parked at location T 099 982 C (the car park at the disused lead works overlooking the Vale of Glendasan) From here I took a northern route direct upto Brockagh mountain, this is the best route to avoid the thickest of the Gorse and Heather. Approx half way up take a north east bearing to reach the top of Brockagh. I have climbed this mountain twice and find it the best route. From the summit of Brockagh it is possible to hike across to Tonelagee. From OS Map No. 56 there are three summits (unnamed) shown between the two mountains, I used these as my way markers across to Tonelagee. These appear to be the best routes across as it is quite marshy and boggy, try to avoid the low-lying ground as it is quite easy to get stuck. Also beware of some holes in the ground leading to underground springs. They are difficult to see until nearly too late but due care and attention is enough to keep you safe. From the nearest summit to Tonelagee located to the south east, gently start making your way north east, avoiding the valley and springs that block your way (this will make sense when you see them in front of you) I proceeded to O 093 018 D (approx halfway between Tonelagee NE Top and Tonelagee itself) this route appears to be one of the easiest to climb from this side of the mountain with the added benefit of a great view of Lough Ouler. The last third is a tiring climb but relatively straight forward as the sheep and mountain goats have marked a route in the boggy ground.
I descended taking a south west route from the summit, basically heading for the wicklow gap car park from the summit. This route is very overgrown with heather particularly as you get nearer the base so a little care is advisable. It is doable but the ground can be undulating. Once I got to the Wicklow gap car park I took the main road walk back to where I parked. Began this hike at 9am and was back in the car by 1.30pm. Perfect weather conditions.
