As somebody who made the unwelcome acquaintance of The Bull more than 10 years ago, I've still managed to climb Benwiskin - and it's feasible as long as you don't start from the Gleniff valley. My last route was un Ben Bulbin through Kings Gully and then follow the ridge over to Benwiskin. It6's a gorgeous walk - only downside is yopu have to retrace your steps if you want to avoid descending to Gleniff and take the chances of an enconter with the Bull.
