Nice peak
by Fergal Meath  12 Oct 2016
Our party of 6 took the Lugmore ridge home after a visit to Mweelrea via the ramp on a sunny and calm October day. If we had taken a short-cut back down the ramp we would have missed out on this fantastic peak and an exhilarating ridge walk.We found the descent off the end of this ridge to the sluice gates at the southern end of Doo Lough quite tricky and time consuming as there are a lot of crags to avoid. But this peak and its ridge were definitely worth the extra effort. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/38/comment/18652/
