Boulder strewn summit on ridge SE from Mullaghcleevaun
Short Summary created by simon3, Onzy, Sarkuns  22 Mar 2015
Mullaghcleevaun East Top is possible to reach from all sides. The easiest way is coming from Carrigshouk , and starting at O1027 0525 A, or any other small gap along the Military road. (If it is a Bank holiday and promising weather come early because the places are limited, but on an ordinary day you will find a parking place easily).

Located in the middle of the mountain range this summit usually is visited as part of longer walking routes. With access from Stoney Top an obvious route taking in Tonelagee and its NE Top or from Duff Hill then extending the walk to Gravale and Carrigvore. Possible walking route from Blessington side, coming from Mullaghcleevaun.

Track 2370

This part of Wicklow Mountains is famous for boggy terrain so hiking boots are a MUST. And if you don’t want to get your trousers dirty (because you will) I suggest gaiters. If the weather is rainy then the terrain will get only more and more difficult. But the reward for your dirty trousers will be 360 degrees view at the heart of Wicklow Mountains . Linkback:

Got here Sunday 22 03 09 from Duff Hill having started at Sally Gap, about three and something hours. From Duff Hill we dog legged slightly and hit the 776m point on the Harveys map first. Gorgeous views across the Military road to the east to Lough Dan framed by the twin peaks of Knocknacloghoge and Kanturk. Linkback:

Wounded Huzzar on Mullaghcleevaun East Top, 2006
by Wounded Huzzar  16 Mar 2006
I recently hiked from Carraigshouk (parking at the little layby on the Military Road), we headed over Carraigshouk, and the across to Mullach Cliabháin (East) across the bog. The ground is extremely boggy here, gaiters are an absolute must, and the going is quite slow as you work your way around, and in and out of holes. Once you reach the slope of Mullach Cliabháin East, the ground firms up considerably, making the going a lot easier. When heading over to Mullach Cliabháin proper from the east top, it's best to stick to the higher ground on the shoulder that links both peaks. There are massive areas of exposed peat and eroded bog here, so it's best to try and avoid them. I headed back the way I came then. All in all this is a nice hike, and despite the boggy conditions it's really enjoyable, your efforts are constantly rewarded by stunning views. Tóin le Gaoth, Barr na Cuilleann, and Stoney Top, and Logalla, Cnocnacloghoge and Lough Dan from Carraigshouk. Linkback:

I climbed Mullaghcleevaun East Top on 26th November 2005 in semi icey conditions. It makes an excellent circuit from Carrigshouk to East Top, then either include Mullaghcleevaun or else head directly for Barnacullian by staying on the ridge which can be very wet, and then on to Stoney Top and Tonelagee. Generally the area on the eastern side of the Barnacullian ridge is drier and has better ground for walking. A consideration to be kept in mind though is if you wish to head directly to Military Road at any time the later you leave it particularly after recent rain Glenmacnass River can be awkward to cross if you decide to do so before Glenmacnass Car Park. The attached photo shows the section from Carrigshouk rising to East Top. Linkback:

The high point of the climb
by Colin Murphy  26 Jul 2015
A technical point - I assume the summit of a top is the highest natural feature. In that case the cairn on Mullaghcleevaun East is not the actual high point, rather the large boulder a few metres away. So if you don't want to take any chances that you haven't been to the top...make sure you clamber up! Linkback:

robespierre on Mullaghcleevaun East Top, 2005
by robespierre  5 Jan 2005
Mullaghcleavaun East Top is a really enjoyable hike from Blessington. We left from Blessington in the middle of a hurricane during the August Bank Holiday and took the road around the lake turning left at this pub and small shop up towards Black hill. We went over Black Hill and ascended Mullaghcleavaun which was hidden from us by some very thick fog. Visibility was down to about ten feet. The wind was howling and the hail started to come down quite heavily but the walk was pretty invigorating. The ground can’t get very boggy so picking out a path or following one of trails has its merits if the weather is inclement. Once we got to the top of Mullaghcleavaun the view was spectacular. A parting in the cloud threw the lakes open before as the afternoon sun shimmered briefly across them. The brief walk from there to the East-top is a pleasant jaunt down through a saddle past a few somewhat startled sheep through some heavily eroded bog.

We completed the circuits by walking around in the reverse direction around Mullaghcleavaun from the East Top to get back to our starting point. The first people we saw all day was on the way back to main road once we’d left the hills behind us. That may or may not be normal but it was very much virgin space that day. A most pleasant climb and with no forests in the vicinity we got a break from all those pesky flies. Linkback:
