Remote, coastal peak with conical summit and superb views.
Short Summary created by markmjcampion, scapania  28 Nov 2020
Masatiompan is the most northerly peak on the splendid ridge that runs north from the Conor Pass. A close neighbour of Mt. Brandon it is surrounded by cliffs and v steep ground on its N flanks.
W. Park in Tiduff (Q43300 12496 starA) and take the Dingle Way east, following the old track to the col between Masatiompan and Piaras Mór. This track climbs gradually to a shoulder at about 450m, from where a steep drop to the Atlantic far below is revealed. Continue to the col with its ogham stone, thengo left following a fence to the summit cairn. Allow 3.5 hrs+ for this 8.5k return with 650m ascent.
W. It's also possible to start at Brandon Creek Q42305 12028 starB and hug the coast on a narrow trail above spectacular cliffs to Beennaman before heading up M's steep western spur. 2.5 hrs to summit.
E. Park carefully at the end of the R550 near Q52621 17262 starC. From here cross a stile and follow a track that will carry you past Bookeen's southern col and on up past Faill an tSáis before joining the Dingle Way at Q49132 14544 starD. Follow the DW vaguely west until you reach the col at Q46484 14118 starE and then walk north for 500m to the summit. 3hrs+ to summit
A more scenic, rugged and undulating route that stays closer to the coastline can be started at the same point and skirts the north of Bookeen before joining the previous route at Q49753 15632 starF.
The Dingle Way route can also be accessed by starting in the village of Brandon or by parking at Q50825 14584 starG
