Twelve Ben
The usual route to do all the Bens is to start on Derryclare. Walk anti-clockwise around Glencoaghan Valley, via Bencorr, Benbreen, Bengower. Then do Ben Lettery and Benglinisky. Contour around the west of Bengower and Benbreen to the pass at Maumina. Then up Benbaun and follow the chain of mountains leading west, Muckanaght, Bencullagh. In the past people also included Diamond Hill though that may not be feasible today. The Na Beanna Beola club organise a challenge walk following this route in early June each year. (Details in Challenge Walks section of www.simonstewart.ie). This route does involve doubling back for around 4 km, but this is unavoidable.

It's worth saying that this walk is an extreme challenge physically and to a lesser extent navigationally. The weather of the whole area, like the Turks or Sheefrys is more often than not windy, cloud covered and raining.
