Climbed this as part of S to N crossing of the Beara Penninsula (along the Cork Kerry Border) starting S of Hungry Hill and finishing in Ardgroom. Hungry Hill was wonderfull with great views to the S & E, and was followed by a pleasant lunch beside Glas Loughs (Ref:738502 A)where my dog had numerous swims. From here to Eskatariff things started to go (metaphorically speaking) downhill. I expected the valley S of Eskatarriff to be wet, but as the weather had been dry for a number of weeks, I gave it a go. As expected, the ground was dry, however, the high marsh grass was something else. I fought my way through waist high grass for about a kilometer until I reached the start of the ascent (E of Clogher). To my despair I realised that the deep grass continued almost to the summit of Eskatarriff. I have never come across such terrain on an ascent before, and do not look forward to meeting it again. My dog went underground for the duration and occassionally had to leap up through the grass to see daylight. From Eskatarriff I crossed NW and was rewarded with a magnificant descent into the sunset heading W along the Tooreennamna ridge. This ridge has fantastic views N to the Iveragh Peninisula, the Kenmare River and Ardgroom Harbour, W to the Skelligs and SW to Glenbeg Lough. Word of warning: The W end of the ridge is very steep and rocky and descent is not recommended. I descended NW by one of the steep grassy gullies before reaching the end of the ridge. The overall route would be magnificant but for the Clogher valley, which would be made worse after wet weather when the deep grass would be accompanied soft ground. It may be possible to make the crossing over better ground via the col between Maulin N and Eskatarriff (Ref:722518 B). Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/391/comment/1103/
