An acceptable track in Glenmalure (Expand pics)
I Roving Acceptable Track
If you can forgive the obvious grammatical error in the title piece, you will soon find it is apt....

As I read the continuing pleasantries between the Captain and Bleck Cra, I am filled with joy at the thought of the upcoming Scavenger 5 MountainViews walk on 9th October. I can't wait to hear several hours of this moral, philosophical and/or salacious chat as we tramp for 7 hours through Wicklows finest upland quagmire. As the last Scavvy walk proved, you can take a bunch of relative strangers and make great conversation! It will be great for jackill to have an ally in the Captain in his efforts to keep Cra under control. But if the going gets tough Bleck Cra will turn on his turbo chargers (fuelled by air and nothing more) and take off into the Wicklow wilds.
As if to prove the Captain and the Cra are destined to walk together, I can reveal that an anagram of their two names combined is in fact "I roving acceptable track". I hope that both they and all our other friends on the day will find that we are indeed roving an acceptable track.

So once again, all welcome on 9th October, meeting at Glenmalure Lodge at 9:30am to travel to the starting point. A 7 hour hike taking in Lugnaquillia, so wet gear and good humour essential. Post walk craic in Lynhams of Laragh, and many staying in the locality overnight for extended late night discussions on stuff and stuff. Enquiries to wicklore or Brenno via the messaging service.
And by the way, all welcome means all welcome - just be fit for a day in the hills!

Topped Mountain: Short & simple

A simple little Binnion to climb (the name Topped 'Mountain' is a bit of a stretch). A gravel path & steps from a carpark will see you reach the top in about 15 minutes, and you won't even need yo...

Crockmulroney: Good summit for Carn-baggers
Colin Murphy a week ago.
A fine hill with a well defined summit and great views. Plenty of parking spots along the R254 directly to the south of the summit. From there it's a relatively simple 1km climb to the top.
