The summit cairn on Meacanach and the view to the west on a snowy December 28th, 2003. We gained the summit of Meacanach from the Kylemore River in Glencorbet via the col just south of Maumnascalpa (marked on the Harvey map). The summit is a fairly steep slog up from the valley, and care should be taken when the ground is slippy underfoot. Once at Meacanach, Bin Fraoigh and Binn Bhan are easily accomplished. Full-size versions of this and other pics will be uploaded as usual to http://www.202degrees.com/mountains. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/182/comment/780/
