A brilliant walk though we did it the hard way and beelined from the coll at 323m. All but the 3 highest peaks in the Reeks were visible as were the Caha Mountains and 'mouth' of the Kenmare River. As we'd walked to ladies View and back before the climb we were quite thirsty and a well-earned pint in Kenmare was our reward. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/348/comment/3966/
