Down in Dingle on w/e of Sept 13-14 with great plans to do Brandon but changed our minds when weather forecast turned out a real dud - heavy mist mean visibility above 300m would have been down to a few feet. We didn't feel like being the latest statistic for Kerry Miountain Rescue so decided on someething less challenging - following the Dingle Way from Feohanagh to the saddle between Piaras Mor and Mastiompan - up Masatiompan and then back the way we came. For a waymarked route, this is a section as remote as they come and being able to knock off Masatioman was a bonus. Like Padodes, we were a bit mystified by the red marker on the summit pointing NE - as there is no other red market post anywhere else on the Dingle Way - at least on the section W of Masatiompan - but presume it's to direct people towards Sas Creek. On a bad day when most of the Brandon range is shrouded in low cloud, climbing Masatiompan from the western section of the Dingle Way is a pretty good and safer alternative.
