The Point
Even if you actually DID do the north ascent and back in 2 hours, then you should still see that time is not the issue here.
Or at least for most people it isn't.
Most of us just want to climb safely, take our photos and return to tell the tale.

There seems to be an undercurrent - passively encouraged by the silent management of this website - of derring-do and buailim scíth in these pages.
A fellow who wrote a bit on the Hag's Tooth blithely finishes telling us that the climb would not be one for a windy day or those without a head for heights.

Am I the only one here who knows that standard life insurance policies do not cover death resulting from mountaineering ?
Am I the only one who hasn't bumped up the policy to cover extreme sports ?
Or am I simply the only one whose everyday life provides him with more than enough situations - workwise, familywise and communitywise - to use up any surplus tospach ?

I doubt it.
But it does seem that - like the woman who complains in the shoe shop about the hurt her "stylish" shoes are causing here - I'm the only one actually SAYING so . . .

Addendum :
========

All responses to my previous comments on Mullaghanattin climb entries have ignored the main point. That is that since 90% of hill-walkers are just day-trippers, the difficulty ratings for the peaks entered on this sort of website should reflect the experience level of the majority, not the minority. Ditto with anticipated climb/walk times and safety considerations.
Hey man -- we the usually silent majority of climbers don't want to get anything other than a good day's exercise and a few good photos from it all.

It seems that this website not only provides a league table format for climbers racking up their conquests : it also seems to disallow any form of dissent against this sub-culture of Boastful Bernardism.

I have to add my most recent comment here as there is no visible means to add a comment on the Motley Views webpage. How do other people add their comments ? Maybe they'll tell us.
