PMG Walk 61 - Benbaun ridge walk. After a very wet and windy day yesterday I was able to get out and do some walking in better conditions! It was still cold and windy with showers but otherwise good! This route would be a lot shorter if two cars were had as the walk to the summit of Cregg is a road which adds about 7kms if walking from the main road like myself. Otherwise the route was good, some nice views. Sadly the clouds came down when I was going up Benbaun and had just a quick glimpse of the views from the summit for a few seconds. Nice ridge walk!
