Track all the way to the top
by Bunsen7  24 Oct 2021
There are fantastic views from this top of the Coum and the Nire Valley. It is also relatively easy to reach. There is a farmer's track which leads all the way up from the Nire Valley, and includes a bridge that ensures you don't need to cross the fast flowing streams. This track commences at S27213 13021 G and goes south initially and then south eastwards up the southern side of north western shoulder of Coumfea North Top. The line taken minimizes the steepness of the ascent.

In clear weather this track is very obvious and can be seen as a distinct line from Coumfea West Top. This track would make for a very straight forward up and down to Coumfea and affords fantastic views of Coumalocha. Although it contours along the side of the mountain, there is no exposure whatsoever. The cliffs are only at the summit rim.

Of course many people (like myself) will try to make the longer loop which goes to the West Top. The issue with that is it necessitates a stream crossing. There is a stepping stone ford at S27153 12358 H and when the stream is in spate, if you do not like the look of this, it doesn't get better further upstream, where the ground is wild. So if you want to do the loop, have sticks and anything else needed to ford the stream (expecting to get your feet wet). Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/81/comment/23313/
