Ascent of Benwee on 2022-05-15
|Date:||Sunday, May 15, 2022|
|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Motorized Transport to Trailhead:||Car|
| Elevation:||2238 ft / 682 m|
Ascent Trip ReportWe parked our car in the parking lot at 53.581361, -9.513222. We walked straight to the ridge on the grassy slope. Then a gradual ridge trail along the fence. A few places are steeper, but never excessively so. Nice view around. More than a massive summit plateau, more than a kilometre of flat walking. A few outcrops pretend to be HP. It's hard to say, but the one in the W looks a bit higher. We spent almost a half hour on top, enjoying the sunshine. On the way down, we took a short detour to see the views from the NW ridge. Nice, good hike.
For me this the last peak of 24 in Ireland's P600 list.
2h05 up, 2h20 down, 4h25 roundtrip.
Short, self organized trip to Ireland.
