Climb Every Mountain
After completing Dillon's 2,000 ft Irish mountains (Full story see pg 18 on http://www.mountaineering.ie/documentbank/uploads/IML86.pdf), i didn't think I'd be smitten again by the satisfaction of closing in on another personal milestone, but I am! I'm six tops away from completing Stewart's 600m list, four of them in the South-West (SW) and 2 in Donegal. My hope is to complete the SW ones by the end of this week if all goes well - watch this space. I have to say the 600m tops is worth every effort so far - don't stop with the 2,000 footers. At times, even the 500m or lower tops are gems. I would encourage every "Mountain Viewer" to explore and summit as many tops as possible, return time and again to visit our wonderful mountains, even consider spending a night (or two) amongst them, and spread the word to your friends, family locally and abroad. Climb Every Mountain!
Will do, Eamonn. .. by pdtempan   (Show all posts)

Tonelagee NE Top: Barely recognisable as a separate top
Colin Murphy 14 hours ago.
This is a handy one to bag on the way to Tonelagee, but it is so nondescript that many a walker has by-passed it without realising it is a top in itself. The summit is a broad, grassy area with no...

Tonelagee: The perfect beginner's mountain

Besides crossing Glenmacnass River at the start and end, (which has seen many an unfortunate walker ascend in soggy boots) Tonelagee is a pleasant and relatively easy climb from the carpark near t...
