First step to Stumpa Duloigh
Short Summary created by Peter Walker  21 Jun 2012
Knockaunanattin W Top lies just north of the impressive Ballaghbeama Gap and is the first eminence on an sprawling-but-entertaining ridge that culminates in Stumpa Duloigh.

Starting from the Gap at 755781 A an ascent should take no more than 25 minutes to the top. Head north up the slope that constitutes the blunt ridgeline. The ascent climbs over numerous easy benches (especially in the lower reaches) before reaching an extensive summit of bumps and rocks and puddles with one more substantial lough: the summit is the top to the right of this. The views are excellent for such an overlooked top: Mullaghanattin is magnificent and the ridge leading to Stumpa looks alluringly wild and romantic.
