A peak best left for dry summer conditions.

A slightly tortuous start( from a gateway at G893884 A) to a horseshoe walk taking in Binnasruell, Silver Hill, Cullaghcro and Carnaween. I noted that many previous posters on this summit had been here in winter and was hoping that the generally sodden underfoot conditions would have improved after another "good" Irish summer.

As it turned out the ground was not that bad and if anything the numerous wire fences, some with barbed wire, none with styles, were more of a hindrance to my progress. I continued over the various minor summits to the summit area which appears to have roughly three points that could be considered the top. In any case, a five minute circuit of the lake on top of Binnasruell will cover all the highest points and ease the conscience of even the most pedantic peak-bagger.
