Walk of the Year 2015 - Geo
My vote for walk of the year was my chance in June to do the Coomloughra Horseshoe in the Reeks.
Before and since in 2015 I have had more than my share of
a) damp;
b) moist;
c) wet;
d) soaking and
e) horrendously Baltic with a side order of monsoon.
In fact lately some of my walking buddies have stopped joking about my jinx this year and begun to believe that perhaps I am a rain god!
But I digress, back to the horseshoe, the culmination of my highest hundred summits which I have been working on since 2008 (the old 100 list from then not the 'new' list).
The June holiday weekend was quite mixed we did the Hag's Tooth and the Knockbrinnea's on the Saturday and were literally blown back to Cronin's Yard, bedraggled and you guessed it, wet!
On the Sunday as we did the horseshoe clockwise we had all the seasons and weathers in one day. We watched as clouds queued up to the west over the Atlantic and then raced towards us, mostly missing us by kilometres or only metres in some cases! Then on top of Beenkeragh as we contemplated the enveloping mist and cloud and wondered if we would find our way across to the Bones, suddenly, almost biblically the cumulus was parted and we saw the promised land ahead, well ok more like a razor's edge!
What a thrill ride to finish the hundred perched on the Bones, with derriere at 956.5m and Ireland's highest all around, almost close enough to touch, I have to admit the 7 years getting to this point brought a tear, in addition to the one's the wind at that altitude would normally bring!
Glad to have had the company of the 3 musketeers and D'Artagnan as usual (Will there be a "Twenty Years After"?)
One of Ireland's great walks and a super day with wonderful company - That to me is a recipe for Walk of the Year

Tooreennamna: False Summits abound

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