Re: Dingle to Cloghane
Hi Lenny, thought I'd answer your question as I have been up Brandon twice via both the N and S ridge two months ago. There is a fair amount of climbing coming up from Dingle, but once you are along the ridge it is pretty straightforward. Just mind the wind while reaching the top of Gearhane as the ridge is rather narrow and exposed at that point. Just below Brandon Peak, a good path leads straight up Mount Brandon. From there, there are several options, but the Faha Ridge should be avoided for the descent, as it is very steep and exposed and the route-finding seems to be pretty tricky. There is an obvious path to the right of the main trail going down the steep slopes to the Paternoster Lakes, which is signposted, just before the Faha Ridge. This is the most direct route to Cloghane. The other option if you have time and don't mind adding some distance, is to follow the N ridge and turn right at the col between Piaras Mor and Masatiompan to follow the Dingle Way. The views along this ridge are absolutely breathtaking -arguably some of the best in Ireland- so don't hesitate if the weather is nice, although you will add a fair amount of distance, including some tarmac between Brandon village and Cloghane. Hope you will get a good day for it !!
