skyehigh on An Bheann Mhór, 2005
by skyehigh  12 Jun 2005
A route (the Maughernane circuit) recommended by Joss Lynam combines the tops of Coomcallee with those of L Iskanamacteery Mtn. For the benefit of any who follow this route, this picture shows that a direct descent to the north from the final peak (the one on the right)would be steep but practicable. However, it is slippery when wet, and the recommended descent is to descend the west ridge part way before descending the slope to the road.
