I
by geohappy  12 Jul 2015
On returning home from the Killarney Challenge yesterday (sadly washed and blown out with almost all not completing) I logged on to add my peaks and discovered this one, which must be one of the new Arderin Begs as there is no comment yet. As it was the only peak not covered in cloud, I can say the views were great to the north but the imposing ridge to the south was out of sight. The route we took (2 groups of 75 starting at a 30 minute interval) follows simon3's well described route (track 2560). We continued on to Tomies and Purple but the weather steadily worsened. This north-south walk is great and I plan to come back to see what I missed. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1421/comment/18185/
