Derrymore direct ascent
by Bunsen7  7 Nov 2016
Having parked in the lane after Derrymore bridge, I slogged straight up the north side of Gearhane, ultimately seeking to complete the Derry more loop track. (I tired and did not have the gusto to add the spur to bautregaum NW, instead going straight to the north east top).

There is no track straight up Gearhane so this is a tough ascent route. I may have been better minded to enter the Glen, but with mist spreading from the south I was concerned I would not find the route up from the head of the valley.

What I can say is this. The approach is hard work but, so long as the mist stays above 700m, it gives a great perspective on the subsidiary peaks north of baurtregaum, and stopping to turn around provides a panoramic vista of tralee bay, the stacks mountains, banna strand, the maharees and ballyheighe.

I wasn't lucky enough to see the views to the west and south from the summit but you may be. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/47/comment/18695/
