With the decent weather of late, I decided after approx 20yrs to visit Glenmalure and take a trip to Lugnquilla via the Fraughan Rock Glen, on descent looked across to Benleagh and Camenabologue SE top decided to head for the latter remembering a a long ago epic in atrocious weather on this top, happily the day was fine and I encountered no particular difficulties even in the boggier sections as the ground was fairly dry. Still though the descent from Camenabologue SE was difficult enough steep heathery slopes at first followed by some rough ground through clear felled area of forest down to the Military road and a pleasant 3km walk back to the starting point at Barravore.
