After having climbed Lavagh More I descended the col to climb Lavagh Beg to the west. Lavagh Beg is a much more sculpted looking mountain than the rounded blob that is Lavagh Beg. It is quite steep to climb from the col to the summit. The summit of Beg is quite a complicated affair with a couple of lakes and numerous rises and the cairn is not immeidiatly obvious. It is quite steep to get back down into the valley at Doocrow but it would have been a very pleasnt jaunt were it not for the flys that resumed their asault on me (see comment on Lavagh More) as I descended. Sqelched into a couple of bogholes as I tried to fight the so and so's off me, otherwise it was fairly straightforward. Met the farmer who had let me through his land on the way down. Otherwise there was not a soul to be seen all afternoon Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/196/comment/1804/
