A simply splendid mountain top.
by Harry Goodman  22 Jul 2011
After a day and a half of mist enveloped mountains it was a pleasure on 10 10 10 to climb Lyracappul as our first "clear" top on a round that also included Temple Hill, Knockaterrif Beg, Carrignabinnia and Monabrack (See my comments on Knockaterrif Beg for previous part of the route). From the coll below the S spur of the mountain R8430022400 B we climbed steadily up N to the rocky SW end of the ridge leading to the summit. From the top R8456223179 C, with its high stone cairn, we had a view back SW across to Temple Hill, a top visited but not seen, earlier in the day. We also got our first glimpse of Galtymore (also topped, but not seen, on the previous day) as it poked up out of a heavy white cloud base into a clear blue sky. Sitting having our break on this fine ridge above the Glen of Agherlow to the NW and the Golden Vale to the SE was simply beautiful. Reluctantly we shouldered the ruckstacks and pressed on along the ridge and then down NE towards our next top, Carrignabinnia. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/29/comment/6419/
