Just where have I been and how high?
by Harry Goodman  11 Aug 2012
I climbed Drumnalifferny Mt. (mv name), or was it Drumnaliffernn Mt., (OSi name) or indeed Rocky Cap (local name) !!! on 26 July 2012 as part of a round of other tops in the Derryveagh Mts. (For earlier part of route see my comments on Bingorms). From the col with Bingorms B9335015200 E I climbed up to the rock strewn summit plateau passing a picturesque little tarn on the way. For the record, like simon3 found in 2005, using my six year old basic Garmin e-trex GPS I had a height reading of 606m which is somewhat above the accredited height of 596m for this top suggesting that even if there is a margin of error, it may well weigh in at over 600m. There were superb views across N to the majestic line of tops from Muckish to Errigal and back along the parallel ridge I was on, to the lofty summit of Dooish. Although topped by a flat summit area this mountain is perhaps best appreciated on the approach from the S over Bingorms or on looking back on the climb up the lower slopes of Slieve Snaght. From these view points the sheer and craggy W and N faces are laid bare as they drop down vertically to the valley far below. As Slieve Snaght was my next top I dropped back down to the col before making for the ground above the N end of L Slievesnaght. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/283/comment/14743/
