Climbed Bulbin, or as the locals call it Bulaba, last Sunday in August and I’m absolutely gutted to see that GerryM has beaten me to it with his comments, but that’s my own fault and he’s welcome to the first comment. The route I took was much easier accessed than that of GerryM; I parked my car on the North West side of the mountain at a holiday cottage, point 355433 G. From there I walked the road to the south and followed the rough bog track until I reached the bottom of the ridge that runs straight to the top. I left the track at point 352414 H and headed straight as possible for the summit, and returning by the same route. The dangers to look out for, as with any mountain, are the steep cliffs to the left of this suggested route on the way up and the disorientating affects of mist. I climbed Bulaba on a clear day earlier in the summer and the views were fantastic, but this time it was raining and misty. On the way down I was very conscious of the cliffs, which would have been to my right, and as a consequence I went too far to the left and ended up on the ridge heading South West. I eventually reached the main Buncrana - Clonmany road at Meenaduff, where a kindly local gave me a lift back to my car. Having said this, Bulaba is worth the climb on a clear day and my route will facilitate good parking and groups of walkers of various abilities. Next time I will not leave my Garmin at home, and I am reminded of the saying that; “Experience is no substitute for clairvoyance”! Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/475/comment/4076/
