billbaggins: Track 4270 in area near Dromavally Mountain, Central Dingle (Ireland)
Dromavally Mountain from Annascaul Lake
Length: 14.6km, Creator time taken: 5h 8m, Ascent: 593m,
Descent: 592m

Places: Start at Q58240 05104, Dromavally Mountain, end at Start
Logged as completed by 2

Visited Dromavalley from Annascaul Lake car park on a very wet August day. Only light drizzle as I was leaving Dingle but this evolved into heavy rain and I got a memorable soaking. On the ascent I stayed higher and farther north and east than required as I was wary of difficult stream crossings had I stayed lower down. On the descent I was able to stay closer to the valley which saved time. The streams were absolutely full of water at that stage and the sound of water as it tumbled down rapids and waterfalls was very impressive.I think the summit cairn may be the remains of a Neolithic tomb as it is quite large.
