Bogs your Uncle!

Leaving Mweelrea summit we walked in a northeasterly direction along a relatively easy crest, branching northwards to go down towards a gap. Following this descent there is a rugged slope to climb to bring you to the summit of Ben Bury, there are a number of Cairns near the top but the summit lies on an area of boulders. About half way up I realised that if we continued to the summit of Ben Bury we would be doing the Ben Lugmore ridge primarily in the dark and felt it would be better to carry on across the coll and head directly for the ridge. No matter it gives us a good excuse to return!

This ridge has a number of peaks the highest of which is 803m and follows a southeasterly direction for the most part, suddenly taking a northeasterly direction. In some points you may look from left to right and there is nothing but a sheer drop to either side - indeed at some points it narrows to about a meter in width. Possibly not a walk for those inclement Irish days.

As darkness descended we neared the end of the ridge and set out across the bog towards Delphi Adventure Centre and the Owenaglough River. It was fairly rough going and there were quite a few occasions where I ended up sitting in a freezing pool of boggy water as grassy tussocks were not always what they appeared to be. Doing this with a head torch did not make that last hour any easier but the views from the ridge made it all worth it. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/38/comment/6230/
