Spink rescue.
Novice Climbers Rescued from Cliffs in Darkness by Wicklow's Mountain Rescue Teams

This evening, 17th February 2007 at approximately 6.30pm, The Glen of Imaal Mountain Rescue Team and Dublin/Wicklow Mountain Rescue Team were alerted by Gardaí to two people stuck on the steep craggy ground of The Spink in Glendalough.

The pair, male (26) and female (24), from Dublin, had climbed up near gully number 3, above St.Kevin's Bed on The Spink when they got into difficulty. An abseil party was sent down from the top of the gully to locate the couple and to lower them down the remaining two thirds of the heavily vegetated cliff to an awaiting Mountain Rescue boat crew on the shores of Glendalough’s Upper Lake. They were then transported back to Rescue Base.

The pair were uninjured but suffering from the extremely cold weather conditions on the mountain.

It is the second time in less than a week that the volunteers have been called out to rescue inexperienced climbers on The Spink.

Thank you to all agencies who assisted in this successful rescue.

Westaston Hill: The top?
Barry a day ago.
I think the highest point is likely about 175 metres in a WSW direction from the mast. I'm judging this from aerial photography and DTM which shows a rocky outcrop in a small forest clearing. DTM ...

Barranisky: Barniskea or Barniskey
Barry a day ago.
Might be worth adding that Ballymoyle Hill might be more appropriate name for this height. Called that in Coillte records. Whilst Barranisky is spelt thus on OS six inch maps, note that Hall Nevil...
