Stared down the Devil's Coachroad and decided he can have it

I know that people scramble up the Devil's Coachroad though the mechanics of actually getting up the top part elude me. Braver men than I! Standing on top of Beg, looking down the massive gulley is sure to make your heart beat a little faster. Great views of the gulley are afforded on either side of it, though care and common sense are required. Getting to Beg can be hard (Lamagan > Cove > Beg) or easy (Trassey > Hares Gap > Brandy Pad). Totally worth it however you get there. Wonderful views and that gulley is a heart stopper. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/297/comment/20068/
