This picture shows the col between Silver Hill and Lavagh Beg (in the mist to the right). Progress is fairly straightforward, with just the odd boggy hole to catch the unwary. Do take care crossing the fence, which runs N-S along the bottom of this valley. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/196/comment/1089/

Climbed June 7th – After taking a break at one of Lavagh More’s summit locheens IG 93544 91010 A, the third summit bagged that morning, I made my way on a bearing of 306 NW towards the more aesthetic looking, albeit smaller, Lavagh Beg dropping down a short distance to the col between the two ‘Lavaghs’. The descent over exposed rock and firm ground was fairly easy and the walk over the col a relative pleasure in the approaching noon heat. The ascent of Lavagh Beg was also relatively easy over large areas of exposed rock at first and then the usual grass covered slopes up to the summit cairn. Either side of the summit is a locheen, The views from here are similar to those from big brother across the valley. As ‘gerrym’ suggests the windfarm close to Silver Hill does detract somewhat from the otherwise feeling of isolation, the various lochs around the foot of the Binnasruell plateau were particularly eyecatching in the sunlight. I stopped by the side of one of the summit locheens for a short break, taking the opportunity to doff my boots and enjoy a cool feet soak, After a snack and re-booting I was sorely tempted to make for Silver Hill & Carnaween to the west and southwest respectively, but decided to stick to my intended route (having left a copy of it at home just in case!). Therefore, I headed off in the direction of Binnasruell, the penultimate summit in the circuit, across the valley. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/196/comment/2390/
