Brandon Peak

Last time we only made it near the very top of Brandon Peak. The strategy to avoid the edge of the mountain proved to be wrong and we came near a very steep and rocky slope at the south-western part of this mountain near Gearhane An Géaran. Quite scary.

This time I went alone from Connor pass via Beenanabrack and Ballysitteragh and passed the saddle in northern direction. From there I climbed up to Gearhane An Géaran over a meadow and reached a gate at the top. From there 200 meters of a scary path (at least for me) on the very edge had to be passed before I reached less dangerous parts of the mountain. A great view towards Castle Gregory and the eastern mountains of Dingle peninsula were the reward.
