High centre of an exhilarating ridge.
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy, simon3,  30 May 2016
Ben Lugmore at 803m is the 18th highest peak in Ireland and only just short of Mweelrea. (814m). It has a dangerous 600m cliff face drop on the NE side to the Sruhauncullinmore valley and a marginally less steep drop in to the Owennaglogh valley to its South.
Since the summit is part of a ridge formed by its West and East tops generally that's where access to it will be made along a distinct but not very developed path. Although there may appear from the cliff side to be extremely big drops between the summits of Ben Lugmore, this is not actually the case on the ground. The drop between Ben Lugmore and the West top is a steep but short 50m climb for example.

For comprehensive access details see short summary for Ben Lugmore East Top. Having reached that summit, Ben Lugmore is reached after just 500m along a narrow rocky track to the NWW. It is a fine, well defined top, marked by a small pile of stones. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/38/comment/4798/
