Our first Arderin completer!
As regular users will know our largest long list of summits is the Arderins. This is the list of summits in Ireland of at least 500m with a prominence or drop to the col to the nearest more prominent summit of 30m. There are 404 of them.

We now have a first complieter of this list, madfrankie

Congratulations to him from myself, the publisher of MountainViews. I am sure I speak for everyone in the committee and community in congratulating him also.

This is not an easy thing to do. First there is the sheer volume of them, some still with poorly described routes. In the closing phases of a round there are odd summits in odd places often needing special trips just to reach them.

It is a great achievement to stand on top of every mountain in Ireland. Well done madfrankie.

Note. This is the first completion of the Arderins as prescribed by MountainViews. We are aware that others have completed other lists which are substantially similar as early as 2002.

Cupidstown Hill: Enhance this with a visit to Oughterard
Bunsen7 2 days ago.
Yes, perhaps this is not a very noteworthy hill. Cupidstown and Saggart Hill represent largely forest topped outliers of the Dublin/Wicklow range split from higher summits to the East by the N81. ...

Robber's Pass Hill: Minor heathery lump. Overcivilised and underwhelming.
Collaborative entry Last edit by: simon3 a week ago.
This oddly named hill is more a very minor heathery bump incorporated into the system of tracks laid out by the Wicklow Mountains National Park. It can be reached from any of the western car-parks...
