Our starting point was the gap between Meelmore and Bearnagh, and on a general heading of 220 degrees we followed a path past Blue Lough keeping it on our left. At that point going cross-country we followed a bearing of 157 degrees in thick mist to the summit. Unfortunately our view into Ben Crom reservoir was a look into cloud, the same one we were in.
