Not very hard
by Peter Walker  14 Jun 2012
Imagine my surprise to be the first to comment upon this veritable Matterhorn of the Mizen peninsula (he jests)...anyway, having been practically blown over on getting out of the car at Mizen Head itself, a quick Plan B was required. The Sheep's Head Way runs over Derrylahard East, and can be used from either of the access points on the road to the north. I chose (988 419 A) where there is room on the other side of the tarmac to leave the car.

It would take a fair amount of talent to go astray, as the track meanders up a gentle southerly incline to meet the forest (a bit wet initially) before striking more purposefully uphill alongside the trees. After a little dip the track passes a few yards north of the highest point, marked by a few rocks of either natural or unnatural origin (see photo). If the mist that marked my visit is absent there is probably an unremarkable northward view; the prospect to the south (to the sea) is probably finer, but owing to the adjacency of the forest only a Spring-Heeled Jack(ill)-type creature is ever likely to see it.

The whole exercise requires an absence of 30-45 minutes from the car. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/955/comment/6291/
