Faha Ridge (centre of photo) as viewed from the southern slopes of Mount Brandon heading toward Brandon Peak.
The path from Cloghane winds is way through the Locha Chom an Cnoic on the valley floor below before the short climb on to the ridge and the final 150 mtrs up to the summit of Mount Brandon. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/35/comment/1421/
