This photo taken on 23/10/04 from Temple Hill when it seemed to have been raining everywhere else in the country shows the impressive southern approach to Lyracappul from Knockateriff Beg which is to the right foreground and not in picture. Descending to the col from Temple Hill be careful not to lose more height than you need to. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/29/comment/1277/
