Bengorm has been the only 500m summit I have yet encountered which I couldn’t reach. Not because it is an Inaccessible Pinnacle or even because of forbidding landowners. No, as of August 2003, the summit cairn has been taken over by a nest of wasps, something you become very aware of as you stop moving to take photos.

Anyway, looking beyond the wasps the picture shows Croagh Patrick across the many islands of Clew Bay. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/309/comment/619/
