Picture: The Spinc in Winter.
 
Sphinx revealed.
by simon3  29 Nov 2019
To the east of Lugduff lies a ridge with Glendalough Upper Lake to the west. The eastern end of this ridge is known as the Sphinx ir an Spinc. Whatever the true origin of this name, it certainly could be said to resemble the Eguptian Sphinx particularly now that much of the forestry has been cut down.

Picture shows Lugduff's SE top, taken from the northern slopes of Mullacor. You can just about make out the boardwalk snaking up the middle of the shot - it is a fairly recent development (last 18 months?), and allows you to escape the worst of the bog if you're doing the classic Spink - Mullacor - Derrybawn circuit. Taken 26/01/2003. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/219/comment/442/

Great views
by ewen  27 Feb 2018
A cold but sunny day ensured the boggy top and col between the top and Lugduff was frozen and firm underfoot. Did from Glenmalure lodge, following the Wicklow way. On such a clear crisp day, the Lugduffs offer great views in all directions but is quite busy. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/219/comment/19863/

Picture: The summit of Lugduff SE Top
colin murphy on Lugduff SE Top, 2009
by colin murphy  29 Sep 2009
Did this as a couplet with Lugduff. Parking at Ballinafunshoge forest carpark, point T 080 930 A, followed a zig-zagging track up through the wood which eventually intersects the Wicklow Way. Followed this until point T087 936 B where I continued NW along a forest track while the W. Way veered north. 500m later cleared the wood and headed directly north across gently rising boggy terrain, reaching Lugduff SE top about 1 hour 15 minutes from start. The summit itself is uninspiring, marked only by a small pile of stones. Carried on NWW for 1km, hitting Lugduff after about another 20 minutes, then took a SE direction until reaching the treeline of Ballinafunshoge forest, dropped down to road and arrived back at car park after 3 hours, including leisurely stop for lunch.

Busy afternoon on Lugduff
by tmsr  12 Jun 2014
We approached the Lugduffs' summits from Mullacor, having come over Mullacor and firstly Derrybawn from the Glendalough car park. Conditions were boggy underfoot as it was January and we then took a very steep descent down from Lugduff into the valley, coming out near the bridge. Surprisingly busy up here on the day, but it was a sunny Sunday in the valley below. be careful to check the car aprk closure as they hadn't update the sign this weekend and we thought they were closing at4pm - trying to get this info from the summit proved impossible, as the Visitor Centre were unaware of the information when contacted by phone!

Picture: Looking into and out of the cave.
 
Interesting historical feature on the way up from the south.
by simon3  28 Jun 2012
Somewhat south of this summit is the well hidden Rebel Cave. This is located at T07557 93712 C. Although we had a nearly correct grid reference it was still hard to find and deceptive. At first you can see an outer part of the cave, to the left facing uphill. It seems a possible cave, if a bit exposed. It is only by searching around that you find the actual slit of an entrance to the interior cave proper.

People have been here and lit a fire in the not too distant past. See if you can find the MountainViews cache, left there in June 2012 - just an MV badge.

Take a look at Track 1808 which shows a complete route you can take incorporating the cave. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/219/comment/14698/
