Climbed this today (3/5/07), in very pleasant sunny conditions. Parked at 'The Cut' carpark at N297045 F. From here it was a very easy, pleasant, if somewhat monotonous tramp to the summit of Barna at N311040 G, a 500m+ peak that isn't included on this list. Its summit is marked by a small mound with a stick stuck in it! From here its another easy walk across the slighly soggy col to the unadorned summit of Baunreaghcong, and I'm agreeing with madfrankie that the nondescript mound is the summit. There are nice views over the Ridge of Capard, though on the way back you have the aerials of Wolftrap Hill in view. Really easy going, though your feet can occasionally disappear in holes. I guess it could be a bit of a slog in the depths of Winter. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/438/comment/2681/
