Losing Billy
The morning brought memories of our song "ten green bottles.........." alas our romance was over and dread at what was to come filled me, would the scavengers be the prey this time. Meeting the hardy bunch of twelve at 9.30, after speeches and introductions the Bleck Cra had us out of the car park and up the glen by ten.
A good pace was set to the col where after a small break we turned left to the summit of Donard. On the summit we were treated to expansive views across the Irish sea to Bristol(so said Simon3, and he sits at the right hand of etc. and is therefor not capable of untruths).On then to the brandy pad after losing and regaining Billy Connolly and around to the col with Commedagh. Here Simon 3 headed off with Mclimber and Ruth (and an unfortunate dbloke and wicklore) to bag Slieve whatisname while the Cra lead the balance on to Commedagh and out to the truly magnificent views from the Pots of Pulgrave. From there the Cras homing instinct took over and a pint of Bleck beckoned, the second group arriving back shortly afterwards.A great day made better with good weather, good company and the excellent route and planning of the Bleck Cra. Over a few blecks plans of scavenger3 were mooted and Wicklore volunteered (or was threatened, I'm not sure). I will certainly be there to help guard your rear all we need is a date and a route.

While it's never going to be hard to climb a 310m hill, this one does put up something of a fight when approaching it from the North, with defenses of mush rush, barbed gorse and little tracks.The...
