Onzy: Track 2436 in area near Benlettery, Twelve Bens (Ireland)
Short Circuit in Twelve Bens
Length: 9.9km, Creator time taken: 4h34m, Ascent: 835m,
Descent: 837m

Places: Start at L77695 48230, Benlettery, Binn Gabhar, Benglenisky, end at Start

Circuit beginning at the entrance to the Ben Lettery Youth Hostel (V93526 80439) and taking in Benlettery, Bengower and Benglenisky. The descent from Benglenisky is from the col between it and Benlettery, under the cliffs of the west face on Benlettery, and across to meet the route up. In retrospect, it may be better to continue right down to the N59 rather than to traverse east to meet the track up - this was pretty hard going.
