Glacial Deposit
by jsramsey1491  5 Jul 2015
Folks, Does anyone know how the long tongue of material extending from the north shoulder of Aghla Beg was formed. It is triangular in cross-section and extends northwards from the aforementioned shoulder about 500 to 600 metres.This a favourite way up Aghla Beg and many of those who have ascended the mountain must have wondered about this strangely, artificial structure. Assuming it is compacted debris I calculate it has a mass of about 3,000,000 tonnes. Some kind of glacial deposit perhaps! I have tried posting a photo but with no luck.
The three peaks constituting The Aghlas are a wonderful climb and the all round views are very, very impressive, exceeded only, in nmy opinion, by those from Slieve League and Dooish.
I'll keep trying to post a pic of this phenomenon of which I must have six or seven.
