From cloud-covered Ben Lugmore East Top, the route is obvious, but alarming, as a steep and narrow ridge slopes off west to reascend to a soaring pinnacle. Okay, perhaps it's not that bad in good visibility, but that's the way it appeared to me in that cloud-distorting way. Mind you, the ridge is pretty narrow, but it doesn't seem to take long before you arrive at the summit, a small pile of stones teetering on the cliff edge.
