Worth The Extra Effort From Croagh Patrick
by Aidy  9 Jun 2015
After ascending Croagh Patrick by the traditional route, continued down the west side on a steep, scree covered slope before making the short climb up to the first and highest of Ben Goram's double summits. Great views, similar to Croagh Patrick, but also giving a new viewpoint on The Reek itself. We kept going west down over diminishing bumps before a final steep drop to a minor road that took us back to the coast. There were new views on that descent over the previously hidden landscape immediately west of Ben Goram, where patchwork fields lapped the slopes of wilder hills. The only downside was the long walk by road back to the car park at the start of the pilgrims track up Croagh Patrick, but I thought Ben Goram well worth it.
