Starting from the Delphi Adventure Centre, I walked north up the road (towards Doolough) for about 500 meters, then taking a track left, just before a bridge. Past a seemingly deserted farmhouse, I hopped over the river and continued north over rough ground. Facing me were three south-easterly spurs of Ben Lugmore, the middle of which looked to be the easiest.
A sweaty ascent ensued. Eventually this spur conjoins with the more rugged easterly spur, and the terrain steepens before attaining the summit ridge. In between breaks in the cloud you get to see the big drop into the northern coum - it's a long way down to the valley floor. And great views east, towards the Sheefry and Ben Gorm hills. After 10 minutes or so, the ridge broadens, and the summit (small heap of stones) is reached. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/51/comment/2467/
