The Big Gun
Know a couple of non MVers who are enthused about the prospect of the Big Gun, so may bring them along. Though have warned them about the head for heights issue - I think it's a much more exposed and airier ridge than Beenkeragh Ridge where the significant drop is limited to one side. There are also few escape options once one sets off on the Big Gun (bar a long trudge all the way down the north side of An Cruach Mhor), though there is a path some way below the ridge proper and tracks around a couple of the more exposed boulders. If one goes straight over the ridge, to my mind it's the best walk that I know.

Incidentally, once Carrauntoohil is reached, what is the planned descent? Know one or two who want to do full Reeks walk so if their fitness permits they could kill two birds and press on over Caher, and organise their own transport on that side.

Slieve Beg: Southern plunge
simon3 an hour ago.
The famous side of Slieve Beg is the NE, gashed by the Devils Coachroad. However the SE side also has its drama.Taken on a frosty slippy day from Cove.

My final Vandeleur-Lynam! Unfortunately No. 273 wasn't the most distinctive summit (when I came off Mangerton I couldn't even pick it out on the landscape) , but the views from the top are tremend...

  
Summit Summary
Dromderalough NE Top: Long route from the south.
Collaborative entry Last edit by: Colin Murphy 2 days ago.
Not normally done in isolation, this top usually forms part of a walk involving Dromderalough itself or Mangerton. One approach is from the north, which has the advantage of a gently rising track ...

Colin Murphy 2 days ago.
On my approach to the summit I came across a large field of hundreds of these rather striking formations, which I think are are moss-covered boulders, but which looked like giant green ant-hills o...

Mangerton: The Lake District

Scapania's directions to the start are perfect. It's possible to make a looped walked taking in Stoompa and Mangerton which will allow for great views of so many lakes I won't list them. It's a fa...

Naweeloge Top: Meh
magnumpig 6 days ago.
I followed Sandmans instructions - thanks for those - it's a bit of a time consuming and boring climb, and the views from the top arent great. I wouldnt prioritise it if you have time constraints ...
