Tread carefully
by Onzy  22 Nov 2013
The descent west from Cnoc na gCapall and the subsequent ascent of Bascadh is over very confused terrain. While the fence is your handrail for the entire march over these tops, it will be necessary to depart a few metres from its comfort from time to time to avoid unfeasibly steep ground. This was particularly so today, a beautifully clear and sunny day, but very cold, with a lot of the rock carrying a slick coating of ice and a lot of the wet ground frozen. I found myself very wary of my footing particularly on the descent. Walk slowly and carry a big stick! Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/214/comment/15262/
