Beenkeragh always provides a great challenge. Most recently there on November 27th '05. With the recent spell of cold weather there was snow and ice on the ridge. The ice was most unusual at BeenKeragh (as you can see in the photo). This meant we had to move carefully over the ridge towards Carrauntuohill. Always advisable to watch your steps when going along Beenkerragh ridge. In damp weather the lichen on the rocks can be very slippy. Also need to beware of strong gusts of wind that could knock you off balance. On a clear day there are fabulous views from Beenkeragh. You should be able to see the cross on the summit of Carrauntuohill, O'Shea's gulley and Curve gulley. West of Beenkeragh, (again on a clear day) you have Caher mountain and Caher ridge.
