Climbed Benard today, after Knockeenatongue and the Seefins. Parked at point A followed good forestry track and took first left at sign for Benard loop walk, about .8km from the car the forest on my right was completely harvested and I headed up a deeply gouged out track made by some form of tree harvesting machinery the going was easy enough as this track was down to bedrock in places. I followed the track until two rocky outcrops came into view and then I headed steeply uphill towards them. The scene up here was one of complete devastation all the hillside was laid bare by tree felling, following a rough track from here brought me to the top in about 5mins. There were great views toward a snow covered Temple hill from here also looked sth towards Ballyarthur Hill sadly not enough time to wander there. Went back to car by upward route, was cought in complete blizzard like conditions before I could reach the car. All said and done another great day thanks to Mt Views.
