I climbed Ben Corr on 2007-06-06 by sunshine and claer sky. Starting at Glencoaghan at 10 a.m. Here are some spaces on the little road for parking. Then climbed Derryclare via Lop Rock where is a beautiful view arround. It takes 45 min to get from Derryclare to Ben Corr. It´s a fantastic view from Ben Corr to Killary Harbour with Mweelrea in the background and the Twelve Bens in the west and northwest. Going back the same way. The walk takes about 5 hours by slowly pace. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/101/comment/2740/
