Picture: An Bheann Mhór summit
 
Peter Walker on An Bheann Mhór, 2008
by Peter Walker  16 Dec 2008
Following the fence west from Beann na Stiocairí arrival on An Bheann Mhór is borderline inevitable: the shallowness of the depression between the two renders the final section barely worthy of the word 'climb'. And on arrival at the trig column the view becomes a fabulous 360 degrees of mountain walls and loughs, land and sea...one of the very best I've ever seen. It was late afternoon when I arrived on An Bheann Mhór, and the low winter sun fighting successfully through the occasional rainclouds rendered me in acute danger of benightment as I tried desperately to take it all in with the camera. The attached pic is a totally self-indulgent self-portrait looking south: the other picture is taken from the descending ridge to the west, bound for the final top of Glanbeg (descent details included under that peak's entry). The aforementioned ridge is steep and rocky in places but should be totally straightforward under normal conditions: under snow, it required a bit of concentration.
