Parked at North of Doo Lough, and we head SW into the abyss created by the Ice Age with Glencullin on the right and Lugmore on the left. At first it looks like the mountain is just going to be impassable, but by keeping left next Lugmore and watching the back wall on the corrie, the "Ramp" becomes visible. Keeping ascending, while taking frequent brief stops to wipe off the sweat on one's brow we reached the "Ramp" conclusion at a little cairn about L8048767970 B. I had been nervous after reading other walkers comment about the end of the ramp and the "hairy" bit. However on a good clear day like we had, and the wind being gentle, there was no problem, and I'm not the world's best on heights! Anyway we reached the GR at the cairn after about two hours and had a cuppa and sambo before the last ten minute gentle ramble to the summit cairn. The views from here are superb, especially west over the shore with the lovely little beach at Uggool (I think a contender for Ireland's best named beach) with it's lagoon behind the dunes. From the top looking west, we had a great view across the saddle/col (someone remind me which it is please?) to Mweelrea, our next objective.
