St Stephens day 2004 and a truly white christmas.
There is something about climbing in fresh snow with a gale blowing and 20/30 mtrs visibility.
Climbing in these conditions with just your own wits and the contents of your rucksack to keep you safe must be one of the last great freedoms accessible to most of us.
The photo shows Cush through a rare break in the cloud from near the summit of Galtymore. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/215/comment/1373/
