Simon's theory on the view westward
by stargazer  15 Aug 2010
In response to Simon's query regarding photos of Gearhane/Brandon Group from Gearhane/Slieve Mish I took this photo on a smashing August Sunday. Whilst it does not give the actual view Westward from Gearhane/SM it gives the view over Gearhane ridge and towards the Brandon Group. If I am not mistaken you can spot Brandon to the right, Brandon Peak and Gearhane/BG in the distance. From this perspective I would say that a similar view should be possible from Gearhane/SM. I will stand corrected on this of course! Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/47/comment/6016/
