simon3: Track 5092 in area near Tievummera, Sheeffry Hills (Ireland)
A visit to Tievummera via its South East spur.
Length: 11.9km, Creator time taken: 6h36m, Ascent: 712m,
Descent: 712m

Places: Start at L8720367514, Tievummera Trig, Tievummera Highpoint, end at Start
Logged as completed by 2


Starting from the Glenummera River, this route uses the forest to gain height on a forest road. The forest as of 2024 is patchy and cut in places and it is possible then to walk uphill through it, past the edge and then onto the spur proper.
When we visited it, no-one had posted a track via this spur. It turned out to be very walkable with grassy terrain the whole way.
Once you reach the top, essentially the climbing is over and you can move east or west with almost no height change.

The SE spur to Tievummera.




We were measuring to see if the first top we came to for Tievummera which has a trig pillar was actually its highest point. It turned out that a place about 600m west was a little higher, though only by around 73cm.

This is a view from near the trig pillar towards what turned out to be the actual highpoint of Tievummera.




Although the Sheefry ridge is well known for being an easy, fairly level walk, the cliff to the north is anything but.

Time was a little limited so we came down after exploring in the area.
