Slievemore Before Breakfast.

I Set out at 6:00am from Dugort (The old settlement opposite C of I Church entrance). The summit was in the clouds. Decided to climb to the shoulder. Crossed the lower slope of the mountain without following any particular route and converged on visible path along the Eastern ridge. I followed this to the shoulder spur.

Arriving at that point I noticed that the summit was clear and that the cloud base hade risen. I followed the same path to the summit. 1 hour 15 Mins to the top. Views from summit spectacular. I descended by same route and was back at my guesthouse for breakfast at 9:30! After this on-the-spur-of-the-moment climb many told me that this was the "difficult route". It may be the most difficult but is also the shortest and the driest. The biggest danger I saw was the fact that the surface turf could give way under your foot, dropping your leg into a sheep shelter hole. I could imagine one breaking ones leg this way as the turf can get a vice like grip on your calf. There are steep drops to your right as you climb and to your left as you descend. Clearly this climb should only be attempted in good visibility. I have Garmin GPS track from this climb if anyone would like to have it. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/153/comment/1926/
