Geo on Stoompa, 2009
by Geo  9 Feb 2009
On Friday 6th February, cold and crisp, with a brisk wind at our backs, 5 of us took on the Mangerton walk as described by beckett elsewhere on this site. We parked at the concrete bridge (just enough space for 3 or 4 cars perhaps, and went up the bridle path as described by beckett. Having decided to follow the clockwise circuit we head east at V984 837 A where we could see the tail of Lough Garagarry. The small stream exiting the Lough was relatively easily forded and we took a breather and a good look at the ridge ahead up to Stoompa. The ridge itself wasn't too difficult, as we plodded through light snow to where the ridge met the mountain proper and the hard work was to begin. At this point we saw a snow shower approaching fast at our backs from Killarney and with our attire suitably adjusted we took on the steep incline. Very quickly the visibily went down to a few metres but we made it to the summit without incident, the shower finishing and only the mist to spoil what is probably a lovely view from the summit cairn. See Mangerton comments for the next instalment! Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/105/comment/3573/
