Not much of a peak on its own, but a nice ridge walk towards Ben Bury and Mweelrea. As I experienced first hand, the clouds can roll in quickly, so make sure you take your map and compass no matter how nice the weather is when you start out. A fall off the north cliffs would certainly sour the experience. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/38/comment/1776/

Blinding Cloud on Maol Reidh
by swoop  30 May 2011
Yesterday, windy ,raining and cloudy day that it was, proved to be an excellent trekking experience. Just after this picture was taken of point 803m the cloud decended and forced us to turn back towards Delphi Centre. We had intended reaching Ben Bury but it was not to be.
Amazing how quick cloud cover surrounded us, firstly passing us covering doo lough below, and then suddenly moving south over the Teevaree rocks and painting out our route to base.
Viz was 10ft , and cold, mixed with rain and a little hail. The west wind dropped as we made our decent but made for long push downhill. Excellent visit to these hills , amazing views in all direction... but be prepared for sea cloud that can rapidly reduce viz to zero ! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/38/comment/6362/

So far in my hill-walking life this ridge, from Ben Lugmore West across Ben Lugmore itself to Ben Lugmore East has been one of the highlights. Reading other comments, I can appreciate that that on a windy day or in mist my perception and my enjoyment might be very altered, but I would suggest to anyone who likes a good ridge and hasn't been here, do it. And you have the advantage of getting in a provincial and county top i.e. Mweelrea summit. And if your on a bagging quest, the Mweelrea mountains give you FIVE of Ireland's highest hundred. Bliss, pure bliss! Life doesn't get much better than this. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/38/comment/4197/
