Having reached the summit of Silver Hill, we headed East and approached Lavagh Beg from its broad western flank. The summit of Lavagh Beg is a rounded cone surrounded on two sides by ponds. The cone shape means it's fairly easy to get shelter no matter what direction the wind is coming from. Unfortunately the mist came down just as we approached the summit, so most of the views were obscured. This picture shows the small summit cairn (more a collection of rocks) and one of the ponds below. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/196/comment/1088/
