Scavenger 9 from a total beginner...
So it was 19kms (almost) and 1000+ up and more down. And almost 8hrs in the making (what took us all day? (Mary)). Well I'll try to tell you my part in the Scavvy.
Great walk in along a good track, no pause to take pics of the burnt forest (too busy trying to breathe). And of course get a few names of all these new scary/normal people I was to be with for the day/night. A gradual ascent, a few pauses to let group re-group. A chance to get a drink/banana/flapjack, after all breakfast was at 8 and it was now 12 (and no lattes). So we were going up Cove then, ah! but not that way, not on your nellie/or on anyone elses either. Up the coachroad we went. A few went round but those who went UP were very pleased they did, BUT I am going to have to get out my Oxford and see was I thrutching, swarming up and debouche/ing all for the very first time maybe. I do know I was shaking at the top. But a challenge is good for the "soul", and the wonky knee. So on up Lamagan and a break at last. We were doing well for time so I was told to take my time getting down as it is a "steep" one. Thanks for the company and the chat going down, getting to know a few more scavvies. The Binnians are a wonder, I certainly felt blessed to be on them with such a great crowd. I had been out the day before and up Bearnagh and Meelmore and now have a few more tops to tick off my list. First I'm off to google "what is a B steady pace-classification" a testing! walk. Define a great day out though and I can agree it is one organised by Doug and John and all the other "merrie" scavvies. I am now on board for future trips (unless I don't hear from you all again). Go raibh maith agaibh.

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...

Meenteog South-East Top: Really...when is a mountain a mountain

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...

I climbed here a few days ago from the east along the Dublin Mountains Way. The summit was shrouded in mist and we went astray at one point. I later discovered this was the result of a way marker ...
