Benbaun and Benfree from Glen Corbet. Benbaun in particular feels a much bigger mountain than its actual height. Steep ascents, on rock from the corrie onwards, and on grass returning from Benfree. The summits were in cloud until a strong south-westerly breeze parted the cloud like theatre curtains on the summit of Benfree, revealing a series of brief glimpses of the other Twelve Pins and a watery landscape seeming to merge and emerge from the sky.Nick Down117/07/2018
From the lane off the R344 in Glencorbet. Headed south west and then south to the col. Took 4 hours 45 minutes taking it easy with GB.bolton12/09/2014

A splendid walkGill03/09/2014
Bailed out of a climb on Seventh Heaven and went for this instead due to the bad weather.Roen29/02/2012
Really wet day so abandoned idea of 12 Bens and did 1 Ben. Climbed from road directly to East of hill. Rain eased but no view. Enjoyed sense of being way up but seeing not a thingnickywood110/05/2011
we started at the quarry about L747 514. Then sogged our way through the forest and all along bottom of valley. We started to climb the Ben Dubh side of Ben B which wasnt r original plan but looked easiest from close up. Very difficult climb! Very scary aAudi-Anne04/08/2009

Climbed Benbaun as part of a traverse of the Twelve Bens from Ben Lettery to Ben Cullagh. The top is a beautiful vantage for views across to the Maamturks and Mweelrea to the east and north.Harry Goodman04/05/1996
