Picture: The final section of the north ridge
Peter Walker on Mullaghanattin, 2008
by Peter Walker  18 Jun 2008
Suitably inspired by Mr Hendroff's glowing tribute to the Cloon Horseshoe, I jumped off my flight, picked up my hired Peugeot 308 Wheels Of Steel and ventured into deepest Kerry. Blessed with a day of superb clarity, the climb from the north end of the Cloon Lough (as per the guide in the Walks section) went quickly and pleasantly. I chose to go up Mullaghanattin's north ridge, which is a excellent climb with a suitably involving climax: the enclosed picture shows the final nose, which is most easily climbed just left of its crest (clambering rather than scrambling that way, but probably a bit exciting for the nervous). As might be expected from a mountain whose cone seems to be visible from almost everywhere in Iveragh, the view is extensive and beautiful. The descent to the col before Beann is best accomplished to the left of the crest (looking down): the ridge itself is a bit too steep for comfort.
