After An Cnoc Riabhach and the spot heights of 594 and 683 we took a short break west of 683 before we tackled our main objective for the day. When you have gotten this far it's just a matter of the usual slog up that last bit, however there are two sections, the first to spot height 683 where you can catch your breath, and your companions! It's worth the short stop to admire the majesty of the hills around you and a reminder of just why we do this, week after week, up one hill after another, in all weathers, through all sorts of terrain, and if like we had, you get a glorious day, you won't regret doing this circuit. On the the top and the summit had a sturdy trig pillar. Here again you can admire the view before striking off again. We next made downhill SW to point 592, taking a cuppa in the lee of the wind, before the attack on Beann... Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/58/comment/4427/
