New Comment: Big Little Lake?
by MountainHunter  5 May 2019
I arrived at the Ballaghbeama Gap about 4.30am in the pitch black of the night, I planned to hike to the top and take some photos of the Reeks from the ridge. The weather had other plans though, as fog and low cloud completely blotted out the sky above me, reducing my visibility to less than 50 metres. I waited some time for light to creep into the gap and started the hike with my head torch at about 5.10am.

No maps I viewed describe how craggy the outcrops are on the West Top, it was actually quite dangerous in reduced visibility, there are plenty of 10-20 foot drops behind the crags as you ascend this mountain. I thought I'd make this comment just to let anyone eyeing up this mountain, that it is in fact a mountain and quite dangerous despite how low its summit lies. Speaking of the summit, when you reach it, there is what I can only describe as a Big Little Lake, which seems to be for lakes what pitch and putt is to golf. The lake is very long and looks like a grand lake in miniature. Sadly I was completely whited out in cloud and fog so I took no photos, but I attach a shot of the Dunkerron mountains from Stumpa Duloigh, which was my target, Knockaunanattin W Top is visible in the right of the image minnowed by the other mountains in the shot.
