Summary for Camaderry East Top : Steep climb, sorry trail, great views.

Picture: Camaderry SE from the south-east.
There's a number of ways to reach the top such as starting from the main, paying, carpark near the Glendalough lake at around UpCP (T1115 9635). Going straight up from here more or less north there is an extremely steep track up the glacially steepened valley wall to the SE ridge of Camaderry. Other ways of reaching this SE ridge are from the Glendasan valley A (T1157 9737), or by using tracks to reach B (T1175 9704) .
You will find some badly damaged trails here.

Another way to start is from the Wicklow Gap car park TurL Hl (O0752 0009) from which you can walk up the track to the Turlough Hill lake or around the lower lake, L. Nahanagan and over Camaderry and finally to Camaderry SE over steep but feasible heather.

Camaderry SE was found to be a Vandeleur-Lynam, that is a mountain of 600m with a prominence of at least 15m, only in September 2015. Its prominence was found to be 15.03m!

Picture: The easterly spur of Camaderry.
The Fern Path.
by simon3 27 Nov 2015
It is pleasant to walk up Camaderry from the East along the Fern Path. Here is a picture of the path after it has emerged from the trees and meanders through the ferns along the eastern spur of the mountain.
The bulk of Camaderry SE in this picture is hidden under the clouds.
The picture was taken from the west side of Moneystown Hill and the buildings to the left are on the northern end of Trooperstown Hill. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/1496/comment/18395/

Approach from the north east
by Colin Murphy 27 Oct 2017
Well, I completely ignored the suggested routes and started at the old lead works car park at Lead (T099 982). AI followed a track SW for about 100m, then veered off to the west for about 400m to avoid the very steep rock outcrops that mark the higher slopes. Then I turned directly out at C (T093 978) and continued more or less in that direction all the way to the summit. Although as the birds flies the distance between the car park and summit is only about 1km, navigating around boulders and large muddy patches (it was especially squelchy near the top, even after a dry spell) probably doubled or even tripled that distance, as it took me 70 minutes to reach the cairn. Wonderful panorama of all of south Wicklow. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/1496/comment/19769/

Picture: Looking into Glendasan from north east of Camaderry SE
Views over most of Wicklow on a clear day
by Bunsen7 21 Jul 2021
After a dry spell the track up the Luganure brook, which lies almost directly north of the SE top, makes for a very pleasant ascent of this mountain and offers lovely views of Glendasan on a clear day.

I started early from Glendalough, heading west along the St Kevin's Way track until I reached the ruins of mines close to the car park, around D (T097 982). When the Kevin's Way track turns slightly northward toward the road, you can follow a less defined track leading west initially, uphill, before turning south as it meanders around a number of spoil heaps and a few concealed adits. There is a bit of erosion along this track, and it may be a little wet in parts in winter. However, it is easily followed to the "summit" area.

I came across a herd of goats with shapely horns and heavy looking coats, as well as a pair of not so easily spooked deer.

From there, a return eastwards down the spine of Camaderry towards Glendalough is picturesque, and some plastic matting has helped consolidate the ground underfoot on this route.

I have previously descended the track to the Upper Lake of Glendalough, which I located the top of near E (T10870 97098) but it is quite steep and could be slippery after rain. Not near as pleasant a descent as the main track down the east ridge. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/1496/comment/23215/

Picture: Onzy proves yellow does suit him.
Only just is good enough
by jackill 10 Sep 2015
Camaderry South East Top is that rarest of things, a new addition to the Vandeleur Lynam List of Mountains,(over 600m in height with a prominence of 15 meters or more).

The survey of this hill was made on the 6th of September during a field trip which also involved the survey of Tomaneena and Fair Mountain by MountainViews and our British counterparts The Database of British and Irish Hills. We were fortunate on the day to be accompanied by an observer from the OSI.

As it happens Camaderry South East Top made it by the skin of its teeth, 26mm!
However its probably worth going to Camaderry South East for the magnificent view over Glendalough and the Wicklow Mountains. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/1496/comment/18308/

Summit panorama
by Colin Murphy 27 Oct 2017
Camaderry SE is a fairly unremarkable summit, but it does have unimpeded views of much of south and west Wicklow. The image shows what I think is a distant Lowbawn. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/1496/comment/19771/
