Steeped in beauty
by Colin Murphy  20 Nov 2012
Parked on a bit of muddy grass next to the road at V826 597 B, as suggested by Simon3 above. There is a gated bridge over the Glantrasna River, and a road leading up to a farmhouse on the right. Looked about for a farmer to ask permission, but none to be seen, so went through gate and turned left along a short track for about 30 metres, then crossed a fence into a grassy field and began to ascend the steeply rising slope in a SW direction. After about 100m the going became a bit tougher - long reedy grass and quite muddy underfoot. Proceeded in this direction for about 1km, then began to curve round to the western side of the summit, where the terrain became a lot more rocky and quite steep for about 200 m (Point 818 583 C). The slope eases considerably during the last few hundred metres and the summit itself is a distinctive grassy bump, which is otherwise unmarked. There is a great view of Droppa, which because of its lack of prominence, is not recorded on any of the mountain lists, yet presents a beautiful and impressive wall of rock plunging hundreds of metres from a pointed summit. Two hours completed the journey up and down. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/431/comment/14880/
