Climb it because it's there
by Harry Goodman  6 Sep 2010
On Wed 11 Aug 2010 I approached my fourth Sperrins top of the day and the last on my Sperrins list with a little apprehension having read three5four0's comments of April 2009 but I should not have worried. I started from the track beside the Hall identified by three5four0 (but not taken by him) where there was plenty of parking space H3335380567 B and yes three5four0, having read your less than happy experiences on your alternative route, you should have started from here. From start to finish it was plain sailing, or should I say walking, all the way up and down the hill. Although the track was somewhat overgrown it was easy to follow and very passable. While stony at first, further along through (or over) a gate, it became a grassy ride which near its end swung around to the right up through the trees to become a good stone track at the start of a large clear felled area H3261481497 C. Just before this cleared area was the only obstacle of the walk, a number of felled or fallen trees across the track. To get around these I simply moved a little to the right into the standing trees and was able to pass them quite easily. Once past them at the start of the clear felled area I turned right and followed the edge of the tree line up to the top some 500 metres away. Apart from a few minor dips in the slope and one area of very boggy ground the walk up to the summit area was very easy going. The top was adorned by a high rusted metal tower, which was possibly once used as a forestry lookout tower. This was at H3297181806 D and still some 75 metres short of the MV listed top. In view of this I continued on out over the tree stumps to the MV reference point at H3300481880 E. In my view the metal tower stands on slightly higher ground but as is often the case in the Sperrins it would be difficult to be precise as to where the actual high point is and I leave it to someone with very accurate measuring equipment to decide. Suffice it to say I am satisfied, having been up there, I have stood on the high point of Mullaghcroy. Down was by way of ascent and a total distance of 3.7k all done and dusted within an hour of easy walking. This is not a hill to be climbed for widespread panoramas as views are restricted to the NW and limited at that, rather it is one more likely to be climbed by a MV peak bagger or as in my case to complete my list of Sperrins tops.
