Took in Mangerton North Top (as first of 5 summits) in a circuit of Mangerton/Stoompa. Approached from track on northern edge of Devils Bowl that leads to the scarp between Mangerton's two tops. Picture taken from aforementioned track. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/56/comment/3723/

You can climb this far too!

If you climbed Mangerton, climb the Mangerton North Top as well. It is beautiful mountain with a great view. There is a pathway leading almost to the summit but the terrain is not that bad to go off trail (just a little bit too wet some times). I was too lazy to go back down by the Mangerton trail from the Devils Punch Bowl so I just rolled down the mountain straight by the meadow, scaring sheep on the way and joining the original pathway later.
