Point 776 (Stumpa Duloigh)
by Onzy  10 Sep 2015
Captain Vertigo and I have posted tracks separated by only a few days, covering similar ground and centred around Stumpa Duloigh. My track (3080) took an anti-clockwise direction while the Captain (3108) proceeded clockwise. Consequently we approached Stumpa Duloigh, and most significantly point 776 (V 78796 79545 starE) immediately north of the summit, from different directions, with me ascending and Captain Vertigo descending. For the Captain, point 766 was very much the crux of the route (leaving out the ascent of Mothaillin…). In my case, on reaching V78722 79635 starF, where the Stumpa Duloigh ridge meets the rise to point 776, I faced some infeasibly steep ground which was horribly exposed to the 300m plunge into Lough Duff. However, having the benefit of sight lines, I was able to detour west onto less steep ground around the obstacle. What remains is still steep, but without the sheer horror of the direct line. Approaching from point 766, without a clear view of the obstacle, the Captain faced descending onto this steep ground blind and from above – not a nice thought.

A couple of messages here; firstly it is probably safer to take in point 776 from the north; as Captain Vertigo has shown eloquently, a descent to the north is not for the faint hearted – whereas my experience from the other direction, was steep but unremarkable in the context of these amazing hills. And secondly, whichever direction you are approaching from it is best to keep more west of the line from 776 to the col to avoid the very steep ground at V78722 79635 starF.
