A World Of Drama Up Here
by Aidy  27 Dec 2016
I had intended to complete the Coomloughra Horseshoe, but the incredibly strong winds had convinced me that the Beenkeragh Ridge would probably be a bad idea. I was happy at least to have reached this summit, having come up from the Cnoc Iochtair direction. I had enjoyed the scramble up Beenkeragh, where I had thankfully been sheltered from the wind right up to the summit, and this was undoubtedly the most exciting part of the walk so far. The Beenkeragh Ridge was partially hidden by cloud, but it seemed to make it look even more dramatic, and I thought it was one of the best views I've ever looked on. Its a different world up there. It was tempting enough to make me decide to see how far across I could get, even If I didn't get all the way over the ridge. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/2/comment/18738/
