Ben Lugmore and its outriding tops to the E and W, form a high level ridge which has sheer drops to the left down into the corrie to end all corries and long scree covered slopes to the right ,dropping down less dramatically into another corrie with a lough. There are drops of up to 150 ft between the tops which doesn't present too much effort, but they do look good as the picture shows. Ben Lugmore is by far the most impressive of the three tops in looks and when standing on its small top, just past a precariously situated outcrop of rock you certainly feel the 803 m below you. The walk to the top is easy enough on grass from the little col of the W top to a little pile of stones. The views from this height are obviously far reaching - along the wide Inagh valley with the Mamturks and Bens either side, to C Patrick with its white chapel easily visible and Nephin looking like a mirror image just beyond, to the Nephin Begs and the mountains of Achill. There are also good views down to the double corries to the SW with thier loughs. I definitely would not be comfortable here in wind or mist, okay i would not be here at all. There is no need to walk along the very top as there is plenty of opportunity to walk on the less severe slopes to the right, but the corrie does demand your attention and popping up to the top to peer down is a must. From the top can appreciate that there is quite a wee drop from the other tops to here. The walking along this ridge is definitely one of the better aspects of visiting Mweelrea and should be included for a complete experience of the mountain. Trackback:
