kevin dockery on Stumpa Dúloigh, 2008
by kevin dockery  15 Nov 2008
On Fri.14/11/08 I parked at a bridge approx 400mts. north of Lough Reagh in the Black Valley. I followed a rough track to the edge of the lake and then started the steep ascent to Broaghnabinnia (745metres).Weather conditions were very poor with wind,light rain and mist despite the fact that the forecast was very good for the day.I descended with care in a south west direction to a gap before the steep ascent of Stumpa Duloigh.From the summit i followed a fence in a south west direction to a gap before the easy ascent to Stumpa West Top (663mts).I retraced my steps back to Stumpa Duloigh.At this stage there was no more climbing involved for the rest of the walk.I estimate that the total height climbed from the start was 4,200 feet.My aim was to proceed along the south east shoulder of Stumpa Duloigh for approx 1 km. before veering north east down the steep slopes towards Lough Reagh.Throughout the day I frequently consulted my map and compass because of the foul weather.I descended the steep slopes alright but unfortunately ended up in the wrong valley between Knocklomena and Stumpa which was a bit of a shock to me.Luckily i knew where i was as Lough Brin was only 1 mile to the west so I didn't panic.I was faced with a 15 mile road walk in the dark back to the Black Valley.At stage it was dusk but I had a torch,food and water with me. This narrow deserted road followed the Owenreagh River for approx 8 miles.Fortunately after walking 7 miles on the road I got a lift from 2 kind and considerate residents of the valley.They insisted on treating me to tea and sandwiches in their home and drove me back to my car.My advice is to leave Stumpa and the other summits mentioned for a dry clear day.Leaving out the road walking I found this to be a very interesting and tough walk.
