Hare's Gap by a hair's breadth (Expand pics)
A trip in the Mournes
Cra as hero? Not if I can help it - but there was Jacky having whackied his nut off something pointy and inanimate. Blood had been scooting out of him until his friends had staunched him with various artefacts. The lead female had also had the wit to pinpoint me in the mist behind them and having tethered the other three, ran to appraise me of the misadventure and the bare reality that they were lost. Two thirds of the way down Bearnagh on her raggy Hare’s Gap descent, life could have been worse, but they had been unnerved and like sheep barked out of a reverie, had had the potential to flee hither, yon and perhaps alas down …. Two of them circled aimlessly while she stood sentry and I briefly studied the Jacky one. His eyes were not going ‘round in circles and he could hold a sharp enough conversation. His knee hurt and his bonce oozed contents - not a mark on his hands indicating to me that he had broken the fall entirely with his dome. The last furlong off Bearnagh can be a bit disorientating - if you keep to the wall you will certainly die - by dropping vertically into someone’s soup. Numerous tracks edge eastwards, but none with the confidence you would expect. A bit of faith and only a few minutes will have you on Hare’s Gap and today’s gathering of clans. And so I gently shepherded them down. Civil, hurt and lost people - and an odd charge for the Cra. “It’s OK” she piped into her mobile, “yes he’s OK. We met this very excellent chap by the name of ……..” But I was gone. “Who was that masked man?” “That was the Bone Arranger: the Bleck Cra. That’s who missus.”
