Been great

Approached from Beenkeeragh ridge its a short, steep but enjoyable scramble up to the summit. Well worth it with magnificent 360 views if the weather permits. Going a bit slow initially on the descent to Skegmore due to rocks to complete the horseshoe. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/2/comment/6487/
