friends and i climbed Beenkeragh the week before easter as part of the Coomloughra Horseshoe. we decided to go clockwise round the horseshoe but i'm sure i doesnt make to much of a difference. this was an enjoyable walk as it also consisted of a bit of scrambling over plenty of boulders. this can make it a bit strenuous when ascending Beenkeragh but i think the climb up from lough eager to skregmore was slightly harder, especially if carrying a camera in 1 hand!! great views of caher on the approach to beenkeragh and from the top of carrauntoohil as the photo i left for it shows. the rigde looks very nice from here as well! all in all, a good walk and a scramble that gets you breathing hard if you're not afraid to push yourself.
shown on photo is also Cnoc lechtair on the left and going right Skregmore followed by Stumpa Barr na hAbhann. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/2/comment/3760/
