What a day for an amble! January 29th was cold but sunny and with nary a cloud in the sky we set off from Delphi Adventure Centre and followed the Owenaglough River upstream. The route here was boggy and crossed some rough ground but the frosty morning helped us by keeping things fairly firm underfoot. Unsure exactly how we would approach the summit we decided to wait until we were at the foot of the mountain before making a decision to head up the steep front aspect or come in from the side. The front won out and off we set. We met only a handful of people along the way which was a refreshing change from the last walk.

The path stays close to a cliff edge and you are constantly aware as you near the summit of the precipice to your right hand side but the views are simply breathtaking and on this beautiful winter morning it seemed we could see forever. We then traversed over to Ben Lugmore and came down along the ridge simply leaving Ben Bury for another day - a great excuse to come back! Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/34/comment/6229/
