Sculptural Summit

Starting from Carrick Little, I had first visited Slieve Binnian, before heading for the North Tor, leaving the North Top and East Top for the way back. The Tor is very impressive, maybe even surpassing Binnian itself, and its well worth going for a climb over and around its surface if you can manage it safely. The photo was taken from the base of the Tor, looking north. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/156/comment/17701/
