Breanlee- Lough Eagher then via the NW top and a splendid narrow arête to Caher. I was bagging 'Irish Munros' to compleat The Furth on this trip. A brief good weather window after a morning of rain gave the opportunity to do this one- a magnificent spot but not revisit Carrauntoohil. Instead I returned via Curraghmore and Lack Road- still a good walk.pwheeler22/05/2011

First of a big day doing all the 3000'ers in the Reeks. In mist most of the day which ruined most of the views. Took eight hours and finished with a horrendous descent into a corrie through waist deep bracken and heather covering lethal boulders.Aye Jimmy10/08/1978
