After An Cnoc Riabhach and the spot heights of 594 and 683 we took a short break west of 683 before we tackled our main objective for the day. When you have gotten this far it's just a matter of the usual slog up that last bit, however there are two sections, the first to spot height 683 where you can catch your breath, and your companions! It's worth the short stop to admire the majesty of the hills around you and a reminder of just why we do this, week after week, up one hill after another, in all weathers, through all sorts of terrain, and if like we had, you get a glorious day, you won't regret doing this circuit. On the the top and the summit had a sturdy trig pillar. Here again you can admire the view before striking off again. We next made downhill SW to point 592, taking a cuppa in the lee of the wind, before the attack on Beann... Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/58/comment/4427/

Picture: The final section of the north ridge

Suitably inspired by Mr Hendroff's glowing tribute to the Cloon Horseshoe, I jumped off my flight, picked up my hired Peugeot 308 Wheels Of Steel and ventured into deepest Kerry. Blessed with a day of superb clarity, the climb from the north end of the Cloon Lough (as per the guide in the Walks section) went quickly and pleasantly. I chose to go up Mullaghanattin's north ridge, which is a excellent climb with a suitably involving climax: the enclosed picture shows the final nose, which is most easily climbed just left of its crest (clambering rather than scrambling that way, but probably a bit exciting for the nervous). As might be expected from a mountain whose cone seems to be visible from almost everywhere in Iveragh, the view is extensive and beautiful. The descent to the col before Beann is best accomplished to the left of the crest (looking down): the ridge itself is a bit too steep for comfort.
