Summary for Camenabologue SE Top (Céim na mBulóg (mullach thoir theas)): Unremarkable outlier of main Camenabologue summit

Picture: Summit cairn
Starting at the large carpark at B'vore (T06617 94163) in Glenmalure, cross the nearby footbridge.
Once across the ford, follow the good Coillte track for several kilometers higher into valley. After a track junction at A (T04476 95550), Camenabologue SE Top is on your left above the trees. The track continues ahead and you can find your own place to climb up to the summit. (There is forestry to contend with which is very dense and the terrain underfoot extremely irregular, and this route is quite difficult). Another option is to take a left at the track into Fraughan Rock Glen at B (T057 948). This splits after a bit, one trail leading into the glen, the other snaking back around and skirting Benleagh and Camenabologue SE Top. (The well surfaced track is not marked on the map). Continue until C (T044 953) where you will have relatively easy access to the open mountainside.
Alternatively continue on the track to reach the col between Table Mountain and Camenabologue at D (T02085 96698). From here it is a 10 minute ramble to the summit of Camenabologue, and a further 25 boggy minutes to the SE Top. 
Views from Camenabologue SE Top are extensive, including the three highest Wicklow Mountains - Lugnaquilia, Tonelagee and Mullaghcleevaun - as well as the elusive Three Lakes (well two of them!), Turlough Hill and dozens of other Wicklow summits. Other than that, this summit is unremarkable.

simon3 on Camenabologue SE Top
by simon3 19 Mar 2007
Although I have walked in Wicklow for hrumphty years I can't recall trying the delights of this summit. There's many a well-worn and classic route that passes near it but not over it. My visit was occasioned by a howling March gale with shot-gun hail in sustained bursts. One thing you can say for this place is that there's little sign that anyone else climbs it either though quite a few have logged it as one of the places they have climbed.

The summit is marked by a small cairn on top of a peat-hag. Curiously there is another, larger cairn 150m to the SE of the summit. I would guess that on a good day you would get an interesting view down Glenmalure showing much of its length (the longest glacial valley in Ireland).

One way up is as follows. Start at the Boravore car park. Walk up the valley past the An Oige hostel, past Ben Leagh to find the newish forestry bridge which is a substantial masonry construction over the Avonbeg River at E (T04449 95585) around 2.8km from the Boravore carpark not shown on the OS map as of 2006. This is a useful bridge to know about incidentally because various routes can be constructed using it.
Anyway from the bridge go south (possibly back the way you came), turn left at the first junction, then take the right fork, then at the next junction (at around F (T04491 95492)) find a ride (linear gap in the trees) leading SW up the Table SE Top. The ride is hard to see from the road but once you are on it, you will be in a moss covered avenue which broadens out into an unusual triangle of unplanted ground shown in the picture. Then just climb to the top across a most convex of slopes. (Of course, by the time you do this the trees may be all cut down and you will have clamber over clear felling.)

At the top there's various options for example towards Camenabologue or across a fine and very quiet valley to Ben Leagh. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/171/comment/2642/

Never again
by ewen 24 Sep 2019
Went up via the Forest ride from the table track. Put it this way, it may have been the conditions, it may have been the waterlogged steep ride but this is one hill I am never going near again. The second cairn is much more impressive than the actual top but why is it there? Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/171/comment/20657/

Take care in the col
by Bunsen7 30 Apr 2017
Descended to the col from camenabologue on 30 Apr 2017. It was a very wet day up there, the SE top was final objective. The col is NW of this summit.

Sorry to say that on this day, with bad weather, the col thwarted my ascent. Visibility was very poor, but the col was impassable. Deep bog pools 10-15 metres wide in the vicinity of G (T033 954).

I got a better view for a matter of seconds as I headed back, but I think you would need to go well over to the east side of the col to pass it. There is much more water around than the maps suggest.

Maybe consider a route from Glenmalure. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/171/comment/18905/

Easier to get down from the col now
by Pepe 14 Sep 2020
The col between Camenabologue SE Top and Camenabologue proper, that is. It's easier now because much of the forestry has been removed from the slopes hereabouts. Mind you, the slope is steep in places and the going is soggy and treacherous. You need to have your wits about you, but with care should get down and save yourself and your boots a bit of mileage on the track back to Baravore carpark.

by pazapas 13 Aug 2006
19/05/04: the first time I walked in Glendalough Mountains was in 2000, I found a group of nearly thirty deers. This year there was no wild animal to see. Walking in this area is very easy but forget it if you want to hike alone. (Bigger picture at http://emeraldisland.free.fr) Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/171/comment/1228/
