Scavenger 2
Yes, it was a glorious day, and all thanks to Bleck Cra and Jackill for arranging it - and not least for arranging the good weather, which was almost freakish in the summer we're having. Thanks to to all those who travelled, and some travelled a long way. I hope they enjoyed the Mournes, and will be back ( yes, of course the sun always shines up here).

I have added a pic here, and there are a few more on my website at
http://stevemcbride-photography.com/folder.php?id=24.

I shot them in black and white because it's atmospheric, moody, and artistic - and also because I forgot to check the settings on the camera. But it does add something to the pics, a traditonal feel, a touch of history perhaps - isn't that Heinrich Harrer standing at the back? Is that Mallory disappearing in the distance?

Anyway, I really enjoyed the day, and the good company. Hope to see you all again somewhere along the way.

Summit Summary
Robber's Pass Hill: Minor heathery lump. Overcivilised and underwhelming.
Collaborative entry Last edit by: simon3 5 days ago.
This oddly named hill is more a very minor heathery bump incorporated into the system of tracks laid out by the Wicklow Mountains National Park. It can be reached from any of the western car-parks...
