Short Summary created by CaptainVertigo,  23 Aug 2014
Beenduff (515m) is one of a number of prominences on a circa 5k ridge of high ground, with relatively minor undulations, running roughly NE/SW from Knockbrack to Emlagh. Most walkers will park near Q 71563 05353 A and traverse Knockbrack, Moanlaur, Knockmore and Beenduff as part of an "out and back" route. This takes advantage of a start height of over 260m in a gap in the Slieve Mish on a minor road from Camp to Aughlis. The prize offered to those summiting Beenduff is superb views of Cromane and Inch strands, Castlemaine Harbour, with mountainous Iveragh in the backgound. An alternative (shorter) route is from Glanmore. This involves driving along The Dingle Way just north of Inch, and following it for about 2k over a rough forest road as the "Way" turns NE. Park either just inside the north eastern edge of the forest (plenty of spaces available), or, if your car is expendable, you can emerge onto the mountain and pull in at Q 66273 04406 B or Q 66679 04658 C. (Be warned the road is really only for walkers and tractors once you leave the forest!). The ascent is typical enough. An easy gradient at first over wet grasses, getting stiffer and stiffer as you reach the ridge. The sudden emergence of views of Iveragh and Inch as the summit is gained makes the climb especially rewarding. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/422/comment/5181/
