Climbed Knockbrinnea east and west as part of a day long hike taking in Beenkeragh, Carrauntoohil and Caher. Left our campsite beside Lough Callee and started the climb from near the outlet of Lough Gouragh. Its quite a steep and long climb to the top from here. It doesn’t present any major obstacles, its just a bit of an endurance test really, being a long and steady climb. The view back toward Stoompenaduff and Carrauntoohil is great though and on the other side a great view out toward Dingle Bay. Once you’ve reached this summit most of the hard work climbing Beenkeragh has already been done. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/16/comment/1158/
