Just looked at CaptainVertigo's videos of the Mweelrea circuit - an awesome mountain. Have only done Mweelrea from the west side and as others have said it's nowhere near as dramatic an ascent as the circuit from Delphi. Views from the top on a good day are so good as you're going to get anywhere,

After seeing the videos, will aim to climb from the Delphi sometime in the summer, although don't think i'll manage the entire circuit - the Lugmore ridge looked a bit hairy for someone like me who was scared out of his wits on the Beenkeragh ridge in the Reeks.

Great stuff Captain Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/34/comment/4527/
