MountainViews.ie Picture about mountain Knockanaffrin in area Comeragh Mountains, Ireland

The picture shows Coumduala Lough, SE of Knockanaffrin. Writing of this Claude Wall [Mountaineering in Ireland] said “There is a row of perpendicular boiler plated slabs about twenty feet in height, high in the cliff above Coumduala Lough, which provides an exciting traverse.” I’m not quite sure where he meant, but certainly walking along the edge amongst the various rocky outcrops gives quite a sense of exposure.

Unfortunately the ridge route from “The Gap”, the saddle between Knockanaffrin and the Comeragh plateau has considerable footpath erosion. Despite this, the ridge must be one of the best ridges to walk along in the country, with fine views on both sides. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/74/comment/961/
