oldsoldier on Dromderalough, 2009

On Sat 1 aug 2009, I decided to return to a place where I practiced my map reading and navigation during my ML. I parked my car in the upper car park of Torc Waterfall and followed the old kenmare road as far as Friars glen and onto Cores, and made a beeline for the col below Dromderalough. This is an hard route as I had to constantly avoid water between high grass tossacks and rolling spurs. I crossed the stream just below the col and followed a deer path virtually to the top. The view of the Iveragh and Beara peninsulas and the Slieve mish mountains is beyond description and made the effort all the more worthwhile. This took just under two and a half hours. After a well deserved lunch I contoured on Mangerton, passed close, on my left, to the small lake in Ferta and made my way across and down to a very obvious break in the lower skyline at V9655 8345 B leading down to the forest and the car park. It is a long time since I descended by this gully. It has wooden steps in places and joins with an old forest track that leads back down to the old Kenmare road. Follow this track as it wriggles it way down the hillside, keep left at all junctions until you meet the Kenmare road. Turn right here and the car park is 100 metres away. A super walk and two more peaks bagged. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/194/comment/3988/
