12 Bens, County Galway, September 9th 2014

September 9th 2014. Glencoaghan Horseshoe: Derryclare – Bencorr – Bencollaghduff – Benbreen – Bengower – Benlettery. Bright and sunny, very light winds. The descent from Bencollaghduff required some scrambling and back climbing. The descent from Benbreen via a steep scree slope required snow slope techniques. Superb views across the Connemara hills and on over to Mayo. Good practice for Italian alps next week.   Distance: 12K  Duration: 9 hours  Height gain: 1,470m   Max height: 715m
