A memorable little climb.
by Harry Goodman  11 Aug 2012
I climbed Bingorms on 26 July 2012 as the first of six tops in the Derryveagh Mts. Parking at B9331412721 D on the R254, about 200m SW of a bridge over the Sruhancroole stream. I followed the right bank of the stream up NW over rough and marshy ground and then, at a junction with the Scardangal Burn, followed the line of the Burn N to climb up the steep hillside over a mix of rock slabs and peaty/grassy ground accompanied by the contant sound of cascading waters as they tumbled down in a series of small but pretty waterfalls. As the ground started to level out in the col between Slieve Snaght and Bingorms, around B930140 B, I turned right (NE) and climbed up Bingorms impressive rock slabbed face. On the dry day I was there progess was relatively easy with good grip on the granite but in wet and slippery condition this would not be the case and care would be needed especially if returning by the outward route. The top, a rock strewn plateau, was marked by a cairn. After enjoying the fine view S across the valley to Moylenanav and the Bluestacks beyond I headed N along the broad summit ridge to the lower top and then down to the col B9335015200 E with Drumnalifferrny Mt. At this point I could have dropped down SW to Lough Slievesnaght and then, having followed it around to it's outflow, continued down the line of the Scardangal Burn back to the start. However I opted to continue my round and climb Drumnalifferny Mt. Linkback:
