Reeks completed
Wrestled with the conscience about this post. On one hand hate to sound like I'm giving it the big I am. And guess a determined bagger could get them all in with a few days hard graft and good route planning. It took me a lot longer, one of the main problems (apart from life getting in the way) being that it's so hard to head for the Reeks and not be drawn to the usual attractions, the ridges, the Hag's Tooth, the big peaks, the dramatic routes up and down. So the last 6, Beann Dubh, Beann Bhan and Beendarrig, Skregbeg, Knockbrack and Derryfanga were conquered long after the others. But as a South Kerry native, was pretty proud to complete the set and add it to the Purple Mountains (which is a bit of a gimme once you do the main one) and the Mangertons. Now a good few Dunkerrons and Cahas to go and I'll feel I really know my part of the world.

Cullaun: A quick bag.

Aidand's directions are spot on. The road that looks like an entrance to a house actually leads into a forest, it is rough but manageable if you drive very slow. I drove as far as an old abandoned...

You can start at Ballaghisheen, a mountain pass V671 792. Space here for 3-4 cars. Ballaghisheen is at just over 300m so the climb to the top at around 551m is not a great strain. There is a sign ...
