Picture: Sawel and Dart as seen from summit.
Parking for a few cars at A (H58955 96913). Cross the road and head up the initially steep, grassy slope of Learmount South Top. The slope becomes gentler but also boggier as you ascend the 800m or so to this point. From Learmount South turn SW for about 700m, passing though peat hags and heather, crossing multiple fences. This area is very boggy underfoot. From B (H579 966), turn directly west up a gradually rising slope for 1.5km. The terrain becomes more grassy as you ascend and somewhat easier to navigate. A fence runs the entire way to the top, which is a good aid in poor visibility. The summit is a flattish, grassy area and is unmarked.

First Day Out Of The Year
by Aidy 2 Jan 2017
This one was added after I'd done the nearby summits, and as it is now one my local 100, I came back to tick it off too. Knowing the ground around here, and it being a short walk, I decided to wear the wellies instead of the hiking boots. I parked around A (H58955 96913) and the natural route seemed to be over the summit of Learmount Mountain S Top. The ground was frozen in most places, but I broke through the surface in parts that had been exposed to the sun for most of the day. I went deep enough into boggy muck at these times that if I had been wearing the boots, it would have come in over the top, so the wellies were a good choice.

Its a fairly easy walk, with the starting point being high up, and the round trip being only about 4 kilometers or so, but harder than these advantages might lead you to believe. The ground is very boggy, and there are some torturous areas of peat hags to get through. There are magnificent views however, over Tyrone on one side, and Derry on the other, and on a crisp day it was really enjoyable. Could be easily combined with nearby peaks if I hadn't been over them before and a late start in the short days meaning I lost daylight. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/1423/comment/18782/

Winter has arrived in the Sperrins

Visited Mullaghdoo today, as part of a 16.4km tek over the Mullaghs, followed Onzy`s track 2570 and added on the walk out to Mullaghdoo and back from Mullaghclogha, much retracing of steps required to get the westerly Mullaghs, but there was a fine dusting of snow on the tops today. Total time taken approx 4hs, ascent 765m descent 777m. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/1423/comment/20338/
