Wounded Huzzar on Derrybawn Mountain, 2007
by Wounded Huzzar  5 Nov 2007
Brenno is very right regarding the conditions underfoot on Derrybawn and Mullacor. I decided not to walk this route anymore after the last time I was up there (well over a year ago now). Around Mullacor in particular was in a very bad state the last few times I had been up there, with some extremely severe erosion. Unless it's been very dry, I'd encourage people not to walk this route to try and allow it to recover somewhat. With Glendalough being such a draw for people it's hard to see it recovering though.

Derrybawn on an almost perfect day!
by thedoyler  2 Mar 2011
Did Derrybawn and Mullacor today on what can only be described as an awesome day for hiking in the hills. Quick route descripition is as follows. Parked at the Lower lake car park Glendalough. Crossed stream and followed Green Road towards Upper lake. Just before Upper lake took a left following signs upwards for the Poulanass waterfall. Followed Wicklow way signs all the way here to a saddle between Mullacor and Lugduff, with great views of Glenmalure to the south and Glendalough to the north. A quick 15 min hike uphill eastwards had me on top of Mullacor and from there you can see the Derrybawn ridge and it is easy to navigate to especially on a clear day like today. You should cross a fence as you come down off Mullacor and nearer to the Ridge and there is an easily found stile to help you. From here follow the well worn and boggy at times trail to the summit of Derrybawn which has a cairn which I have included a picture of! From here I descended via a trail and reached a road about 100m from the summit. I took a left and this led me in 15 mins back to about half way down the Wicklow Way trail from the saddle to Glendalough. From here just reverse previous steps back to car, took me about 4 hours but that was taking something like 300 photos because of the great conditions!! Linkback:

Wintry Derry yawn!
by Dessie1  15 Apr 2013
Climbed Derrybawn as part of a circuit of mullacor and Lugduff SE on a wintry day in January 2013.Started at the glendalough upper lake tourist centre and followed track up past poulanass waterfall keeping to the left.Summit has a small cairn with a dead animal's skull placed on it which was a bit eerie???Other than that not much else to note on the summit other than the great 360 degree views of the wicklow mountains.A nice warm up to a good round trip.

Wicklows least rounded ridge.
by simon3  6 Jul 2013
While modest as a ridge in comparison with others in Ireland or elsewhere, this is as good as it gets in Wicklow.
Here's a view of it from the somewhat less steep southern facing side. The centre skyline is dominated by Scarr with the flat top of Brockagh Mtn SE Top beneath it.
There are two unpleasant scars on Derrybawn, one along the length and caused entirely by walkers. I can personally attest that this did not exist at all in 1975. The other is an abandoned road created (in the eighties I think) by a local landowner, which you can see to the lower left of the picture. Linkback:

Long distance views.
by simon3  1 Jul 2018
Looking east from the top of Derrybawn in the fine June weather of 2018, rewarded us with a view of the coastline of Wales. There was a light easterly wind and substantial haze but nevertheless the outline is quite distinct ( particularly after a light touch of photoshop).

The apparent double humped summit to the right of the picture and looking like the highest ground is (left hump) Crib y Ddysgl (aka Garnedd Ugain 1065m) with the slightly higher Snowdon (1085m and around 150km away) to its right. Linkback:

Fine, steep top overlooking dramatic valley
by Colin Murphy  3 Jul 2018
We mostly followed Simon3's excellent directions, with the exception that we took the track to the east of the Poulanass waterfall which, for the lazy hillwalker (us included) might knock a couple of hundred metres off the route. The summit of Derrybawn is nothing special - a broad area with a small cairn, but the views to the NW in particular are wonderful, and it was particularly good as we ascended on the hottest day of the year! The only blight on the scenery is the large amount of clear-felling (visible in the pic) currently afoot. Linkback:
