I agree with Milo - and what a nice conclusion it is! Much quieter than the peak of Brandon itself (which seems to teem with people). The summit of Gearhane is a fairly narrow ridge with a steep drop down to the valleys on either side. The remote effect is spoiled somewhat by a gate and fence. Pic shows the approach to Gearhane from Brandon Peak. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/37/comment/572/
