Short Summary created by Colin Murphy, wicklore,  30 May 2016
The Ben Lugmore Ridge can be reached from the east by parking at L82820 69529 A, and following the Green Ramp route up onto the col between Ben Bury and Ben Lugmore West Top at L805 679 B. Turn left (southeast) at the col to begin the walk south along the jagged and dramatic Ben Lugmore Ridge. Ben Lugmore West Top is reached after a 45 metre climb over about 250 metres distance. Care is needed not to wander off the sheer cliffs to the left (east) of the summit. In July 2009 an experienced hiker out walking with her husband fell to her death in this area, so caution is advised. However in good conditions Ben Lugmore West Top is easily manageable. The views are breathtaking, taking in Mweelrea and other immediate summits, as well as the Sruhauncullinmore valley below to the east and across to Killary Harbour to the west.

An alternative approach is from the south east. For details see short summary for Ben Lugmore East Top. Having passed that summit and subsequently Ben Lugmore, the West Top is a simple 500m trek to the NW across solid terrain that is a mixture of grass and rock.
