JOY THEN DESPAIR ...
Wed 26 Aug 2009, 3pm Aghla Beg (South) summit was my last 600m MV top. Nothing more to climb all now lower than that magic 600m mark. Full of joy, tho' slightly muted. Weather - low cloud base all day, misty, prolonged light rain, wind 20mph gusting to 35mph, winds NW/WNW blasted straight at Aghla's. Sharp contrast to walk day before in the Bluestacks. Sharp contrast on return as well. Car window smashed, door handle damaged, door doesn't open, shattered glass everywhere ... on the seats , on the mats. 1,263 euro worth of damaged so was I told by the repairers. Nothing disturbed or taken from car. Not even MP3. Odd. Never experienced such nonsense on R251 at base of Mackoght in years of hillwalking. Normally safest place to be. Effects of reccession? Yeah, any excuse. These low-lifes and time-wasters are disturbed. Sick in the mind. Get a job. Life's got more to offer. But will they ever realise their talents? Sadly, realistically - no. Whenever I venture into the hills or mountains, some people I know tease out safety issues. Tho' I always feel the mountains and hills are the safest place to be. The unforgiving world of man is what I worry about.... for me the message definitely hit home tis' day.

Similar to the other contributors, this is not a single summit day out. I did it after Colly. It's an hour or so with a coffee break. Start at the Ballaghasheen pass (spectacular drive in & out) a...

I am sure like many of you, especially simoburn, that the addition of the Arderin Begs while technically needed, added loads more summits to climb. This one is, well, a real hard sell. I was tryin...
