Challenging Walk in Glorious Backcountry
by ciarraioch  4 Nov 2012
Followed Adrian Hendroff's suggested route per his excellent 'The Dingle, Iveragh & Beara Peninsulas' from the end of the Black Valley. We parked at V812 821 C on the obvious layby just beyond the bridge. Crossed back over the bridge passing through the gate on the RHS and following the track through a gated sheep pen to the side of Loch Riabhach/Roisín Lake. The track brings you to the remains of a very early Christian settlement along with an Ogham stone. Departing somewhat from Adrian's route, we struck off up the northern valley from this point and contoured along the southern slopes of Bruach na Binne, traversing the rough ground until we reached the col at Bearna Seilg, the Gap of the Hunt. No eagles on this occasion, we struck off left along the ridge. Very slow going until this point due to rough ground and rock benches on the initial kilometer or so of the ridge. The ridge narrows giving fantastic views down into the Braighde Valley, across to Corrán Tuathail and down back along the Black Valley to the Purple Mountain, Torc and the Plains beyond. Further along this axis, the distant Galtees were clearly visible on the day as well as Mount Hillary near Mallow and the faint outline of the Knockmealdowns. I thought I could make out Slievenamon just to the right of the Galtees, but this may have been wishful thinking! The ridge brings one to the narrow col just before the very steep and dangerous looking stretch to the first summit. Mindful of the 2002 tragedy, we avoided this by following the sheep path slightly to the right and then circling around from the back. Still a bit steep and slightly exposed but presumably a lot safer than a straight ascent. The first and most obvious summit though not actually the high point is the more satisfying vantage point and here also lies the plaque to the unfortunate walkers. From this point it is a simple walk across to the real summit. We returned by Cnoc na Bríde following Adrian's instructions. Glorious country. For experienced hill walkers only. Six hours overall.
