Lovely Peak
by paddyhillsbagger  9 Oct 2010
The visitors centre was closed for bridge works( as it was at the end of my Malin2Mizen cycle a couple of months earlier) so following jackill's route, made my way to the old Signal Tower at V740239 A. A path heads NW from here to a wall running NE which meets another wall NW running up the ridge of Mizen Peak which comes approved by the wife (who doesn't normally accompany me and had me "grounded" for a period) as there is a path to a relatively short climb with no steep inclines with spectacular views on the sunny day we walked it. Lovely little peak. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1020/comment/6130/
