Benleagh can also be approached from the south, and even without having to do any rock climbing it is one of the more challenging ways of getting to the top. The photo, which I took three weeks ago while descending from Art's Lough, helps to visualise the route. Following the forest track from Baravore into Fraughan Rock Glen, when you draw level with the last stand of now fast disappearing pines on the right hand side before the cliffs begin to tower above (the pines visible mid way up the slope on the right of photo), leave the track (roughly, T 054 939) and head straight for the left hand side of the pines (T 052 940 E) and from there climb straight up the steepening slope. When I climbed it myself earlier this year, I emerged through a little gully onto the ridge at T 051 943 F. Looking at the picture, this route may appear quite straightforward, but it gives little idea of the difficulties of the terrain. The slope quickly becomes a jumble of rocks and boulders, often with a thick covering of heather, fern, furze and fraughans. It sometimes requires a hands-on effort to keep balance and avoid hidden holes between the rocks, but scrambling would be too fine a word for it. Once on the ridge, it is easy to follow it westwards to its hightest point before turning slightly NW to the nondescript summit of Benleagh itself. In fine weather, the walk along the ridge offers wonderful views of the hanging valleys at the head of the glen or of Art's Lough to the south, like a blue eye winking across from under the dark brow of Cloghernagh. It's easy to wax lyrical in places like this. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/126/comment/2845/
