General summary of climb
by Pstan  23 Jan 2011
I climbed Mweelrea on Saturday 22/01/11, from the East side at L82820 69529 A, accessed between Doo Lough and Glencullin Lough. Its a very good workout to the top and the view at the top is very rewarding. I note there is alot of text on this mountain already so I wont go into much detail. In summary, you follow the nearby stream up to a plateau. From here you have to loop around, from left to right, up a valley, if thats what it is called!! This is a tough climb, you`ll feel a nice burn on your quads. After this climb you get up a height of about 700m, which you will think must be near the summit. However, you must swing a left to find the summit, which takes about 45/50 mins from here. You`ll have to head down to about 640m and back up to the summit. The views on the way to the summit are unreal. Enjoy. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/34/comment/6211/
