Fun descent at the end of a fine circuit.
by markmjcampion  28 Oct 2020
I climbed Maumtrasna NE Top as part of a circuit that included Tullymorehill and Barnahowna...about 5.5 hours all in with 18km of walking and 600 metres of ascent. I parked at the same place as Ilenia mentioned in the barnahowna comments and, after heading up Tullymorehill, followed her route to the summit of Barnahowna. It's a slog as she said but definitely worth it for the far reaching views of the Maumtrasna corries, the Nephins and over to the Sheffrey's. I continued over to Maumtrasna NE top via the col to the south east of Glenawough corrie.. very pleasant route with great views into the huge corrie. I followed the ridge towards Maumtrasna for about a kilometre and then dropped down to the brook just above the end of the forest ine. It was easy to cross and afforded an easy ascent of the NE top which is a mere bump on a very fine steep-backed northeastern spur of the main massif. From here, I descended the very steep but grassy spur to gain the bog below in no time! It was a fun descents but not advisable without good boots and a solid pair of knees! Thereafter I aimed for the bog track which progressed soon to a tarmacked road and at approximately M038 636 B I jumped a fence and climbed up through a couple of fields to reach my car as darkness descended.
