by zeaphod  10 Nov 2004
Up again on Sun 8th similar route to the last time - round seefin, long seefin, spences, chimney rock and an easy return to seefin via the wall. Pretty misty/damp/cold on the tops. Met a cheery chap half way back to long seefin - just as the light was falling. "is this the way to bloody bridge?" "no", I said. "my car is parked at bloody bridge". I set him straight. No map, compass or clue! Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/178/comment/1315/
