That bittersweet feeling
I finally got to go through the full MountainViews summit list today to update what I have climbed, particularly with a view to the new 500m hills with 15m prominence summits that were added recently.

Like a child let run free in a sweet shop I gleefully clicked 'climbed' here and clicked 'climbed' there in all corners of the country, delighted that all those nameless humps or less prominant tops were finally having their day in the limelight. There was great joy at discovering each new summit right in the middle of a route I had taken, or that I had had the vision to scale in the past. But it was a bittersweet experience - I also discovered lots of summits I didn't climb, sitting in the middle of ranges I completed long ago or way out by themselves in far flung and remote places. I especially fear the 'Far North Top' and the 'Far East Top' summits - the ones that lie hundreds of kilometers from the main top and require several days trek to reach. Well now I have lots more of these to put on my 'to do' list.

I've no doubt that when I am a very old man slowly and painfully crawling my way to the top of the very last summit, that there will be an electronic ping on my futuristic mobile MountainViews device to inform me that another 5000 summits have been added. I can't wait.....

So the journey goes on, but with more unclimbed summits than before.

This summit, at least on the approach from Glenbeg Lough, is characterised by the number of false summits that emerge as you gain height.
