Fine hill when viewed from the west

I most recently approached this summit in an easterly direction from where it is a facile but beautiful saunter from Bascadh itself. The descent to Lough Fadda is another thing though! I decided to aim for Lough Beg in the south and to cross over to Knocklomena via the southern end of Lough Fadda. The going was tough and I was glad of a pair of sticks in helping me to keep somewhat vertical...with the glories of a scramble up Knocklomena in store I wanted to remain intact!
