Demands Repeated Visits To Fully Appreciate And Explore
by Aidy  9 Nov 2016
The first time I climbed Croaghgorm, I did it as part of a long walk along the central spine of the Bluestacks, going over several summits, and I didn't really have the time or energy to explore the huge bulk of this mountain, just making sure I visited the summit before continuing to Lavagh More. At the time, I remember thinking that it deserved a longer visit and more exploration beyond the summit. Since then, three further summits have been added, that would previously have just been considered subsidiaries of Croaghgorm itself. As a result, I have returned twice more to bag those new tops, and also to find the wreckage of the World War II plane that I missed the first time. Its been great to get more familiar with Croaghgorm's fantastic rocky summit area and the various views it offers. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/150/comment/18696/
