A way to better things.
by Harry Goodman  24 May 2012
Climbed this top on 8 May 2012 as part of a round that also included Nephin Beg. A constant thought that one has in climbing in this range for the first time is one of "remoteness". Even finding the start point for a walk can be difficult to locate among the numerous small roads and lanes that abound in this part of Mayo. We parked at the Brogan Carroll stone bothy F968055 E and followed the waymarkers W for the Letterkeen Looped Walk/Bangor Trail. After initially crossing a narrow wooden bridge over the Altaconey River we followed the trail for some 3.2K to F937073 a point where the forest on the right ends, to be replaced by open ground. The S Top lay due N up the hillside 1k along and some 230 metres in height gain. Going was good and the climb gradual, over a mix of grass and peat with occasional stoney patches. While the view N from the top is dominated by Nephin Beg there were fine views SW to Glenamong and the mountains of the Corranbinna Horseshoe, with Bengorm, our climb on the previous day clearly visable due south. Nephin Beg S Top is a broad flatish non-descript area with the high point marked by a small pile of stones. Return is by way of ascent or for a more satisfying day in the hills, as in our case, continue on NNW to Nephin Beg about 2.2k further along.
