First time climbing Nephin for both myself and my friend. We decided to go at it from the North as it seemed like a more interesting prospect. There was access to the woods on the northern slope off the narrow road running E-W at G109104 C and we drove in here (the gate was open) to see how far it would bring us. Thankfully the road had been continued in a zig-zag up the hill, beyond what was on Google maps, to facilitate extensive felling of trees so we followed this and parked at the top G105099 G which was a great help. From there we followed the digger tracks through the felled tree area in a Southerly direction until we reached the stream that comes of the mountain. After fighting our way through a few remaining, unfelled trees we crossed the stream and headed towards the eastern ridge which was through fairly steep boggy heather, but totally manageable. Once on the ridge the climb was steady, on loose compact stone, with amzing views in every direction. We climbed up to the summit and came down the other side on the west to complete the loop and back to the car. A totally enjoyable day out along a great route with jawdropping views in every direction. Loved it!
