Simple, brief ascent from SW
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy  24 Jun 2014
This is part of a route from the south taking in the Glencoaghan Horseshoe. See entries for Bennlettery/Bengower for parking/routes etc. From Benbreen Central Top this is a simple stroll of 400m to the NE, with the bare minimum of effort required to make the short ascent to a summit which is a mixture of grass and rock, and marked by a cairn.
