Arctic conditions in the Wicklows (Expand pics)
Wicklow weather - great but brutal conditions
Kernowclimber and I have just returned from snow shoeing up Lugnaquilla via the Zig-Zags from Glenmalure. Road conditions weren't too bad but a lot of compacted snow after Ballinaclash (we opted to use snow chains from here onwards along the Glenmalure valley). Snow conditions on lug were fantastic with in places 2 feet or more of snow. The snow was quite soft and upward progress was made much easier by snow shoes. The weather on top was Arctic with strong winds (40km/hr+) driving spindrift high into the air. It must have been at least -10C with the wind chill. A fantastic opportunity to witness the Wicklow Mountains in such amazing conditions (and no bog to be seen!).

Cnoc na Sleá: Not To Be Judged On Size
Aidy 5 days ago.
A small hill, but as it can form part of an extended walk, has some very steep sides, and has some of the best views in the country, it cannot be judged by size alone. I started at the car park at...
