simon3: Track 1843 in area near Devilsmother North Top, Partry/Joyce Country (Ireland)
Very steep start to fine ridge with two summits.
Length: 9.5km, Creator time taken: 5h 4m, Ascent: 683m,
Descent: 704m

Places: Start at L91269 65068, Devilsmother Far North Top, Devilsmother North Top, Devilsmother, end at Start
Logged as completed by 1
Start on the N59 around 2km NE along the N59. The track shows where to turn uphill. There is a gate there. Keep to the right of the large gully. As you can see from the track, we veered to the right to avoid the extremely steep cliffy ground, although it was still a serious pull up.

On the ridge turn left and get easily to the North top, then go back along the bumpy and superb ridge to Devilsmother. Go west to find the spur leading down. Note. There is a large and prominent spur leading south which you need to avoid taking. Eventually the spur turns NW. It is cliffy and grassy at the end and you may need to avoid various cliffs to get to the road, N59, over rough ground.

This route is somewhat similar to that in David Herman's Hillwalkers Connemara and Mayo (1996), though we are including the north top.
