gerrym on Ben Lugmore West Top, 2008
by gerrym  1 Mar 2008
The west top of Ben Lugmore is reached from the high col with Ben Bury (see for route to col). On reaching the col i opted to visit Ben Bury and then Mweelrea itself before cutting back across the shoulder of Ben Bury to the small cairn at the col again. The climb itself is fairly short and undemanding, having done plenty of work up through the corrie to the col. While not demanding it is spectacular, with the backdrop of the whole of Connemara mountains in view and more immediately the breaththaking steep drops into the big corrie to the left and long sweeping slopes into the corrie on the right. The views are quite simply fantastic - across the loughs of Doo and Glencullin to Barraclashcarne and the long line of the Sheefrys, to C Patrick, great views of Ben Creggan and Ben Gorm, cruisers making thier way along Killary Harbour. There is no doubt that the views down into the corrie are the draw and with only a gentle breeze i was able to stand and peer down to the Sruhauncullinmore river far below. I wonder on just how many days in the year this would be possible with cloud or wind hindering the sight? The sound of the rivers dropping down into Lough Bellawaum give the ears some thing to relish, with the optical overload already accomplished. The rest of the high level traverse across the abruptly cut away tops of Ben Lugmore and the E top, as they arc around the corrie, are well laid out from here.
