PMG Final Summit Group Photo
Hi All,

I just wanted to take the time to thank everyone for coming out and supporting me on my final summit of my quest to climb all 454 summits of the Arderins and Vandeleur-Lynams mountains in 1 year! I started back on the 10.01.2014 and finished yesterday (27.12.2014) on Mullaghcarn in the Sperrin Mountains. The fact that people came along really made it for me! Of course I must take time to thank all Mountain Views users too! Throughout the year I have read and re-read peoples posts on summits and these comments along with GPS coordinates and other peoples GPS routes have helped me in my planning and helped give me ideas of what I may do in the hills myself. So, thank you all for all the info being uploaded! Likewise Simon Stewart for coming up with Mountain Views in the first place (genius)! I would especially like to thank Simon Stewart and David Owens (Onzy) who have answered so many questions about using the website, GPS units, summits and mountains and routes!!! Guys, thank you!!! I also would like to say a huge thank you to videographers Martin Critchley (mcrtchly) and Sharon Schwartz (kernowclimber) for hauling cameras and tripod stands up a mountains to capture this final summit on my challenge. Of course the editing and putting together of a video will probably take even more hard work and I look forward to seeing it, but again guys thank you so much! Also Mark Brennan (wicklore) for asking all the questions for the audio side of the video. I really appreciate the efforts involved, not to mention for coming along on the day itself! It has been great to meet some new MV users and put some faces to names too! If anyone from the walk has pictures to share feel free to email them on to me at: simonbyrne22@gmail.com

Cheers again and see you on the hills!

Simon

Summit Summary
Robber's Pass Hill: Minor heathery lump. Overcivilised and underwhelming.
Collaborative entry Last edit by: simon3 3 days 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...
