Named from nearby coum, where the River Inny rises. The crags at the back of Lough Reagh, dubbed the 'Aiguilles', are remarkably complex and offer many possibilities for climbing.   Coomura Mountain is the 168th highest place in Ireland.

Lough Cloon to Coomura via Lough Reagh Aiguilles
by ciarraioch  14 Oct 2011
Inspired by Adrian Hendroff's description in his excellent new book 'The Dingle, Iveragh & Beara Peninsulas', we arrived one June morning to do the Lough Cloon Horsehoe. Unfortunately, the cloud refused to co-operate and we thought that we might follow David Herman's ('Hill Walkers Kerry') route into the valley instead (i.e. with a view towards following the initial stages of the former route in an anticlockwise manner if the cloud were to lift later). We parked by the bridge at the northern end of Lough Cloon (V708 789 A), and initially (10.30) followed the trackway which follows the western shore, and made our way across very rough terrain to the west of Lough Reagh. Eventually we came face to face with the eagerly anticipated aiguilles at the head of the valley. Wow! Waterfalls falling between needle sharp peaks in the most isolated surroundings imaginable. Still following David H's ever trustworthy instruction, we ascended up the most westerly gully, eventually cresting into the Shangri-La of hidden lakes among pinnacles eloquently described by Adrian in his book 'From High Places' . 'Probably' the best mountain scene in the Kingdom! We made our way around the first lake (Coomalougha) but progress was extremely slow due to the roughness of the terrain. It being 15.30, we wisely decided to abandon our initial plan. Instead we made our way south west to an upstream lake from which (V681 743 E) we headed north west for Coomoura mountain. Grand mountain with decent views and a notably ice scoured northern flank. We found a gully to the right hand side of the line of descent by means of which we managed to avoid most of the rock benches described by other climbers. After seeing an eagle being harried by crows overhead, we rejoined the track to the west of Lough Cloon, to arrive back at our car at 18.10. Nearly 8 hours, but a memorable day.
