This is a view of the Beenkeragh and the ridge from Carrauntoohil on 29/12/2003. There are some more photos of it at: http://sliabh.net/images/ireland/xmas2003/images.php


There was snow to about ankle depth on the ridge, so some extra caution was needed. But it still was very do-able. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/2/comment/822/
