zeaphod on Eagle Mountain, 2005
by zeaphod  10 Jan 2005
Up here for the first time yesterday, starting at deers meadow car park, up Pigeon Rock Mountain, Slievemoughanmore, then finally Eagle. Cloud down all the way from the car, high wind speed and frequent heavy showers turned this into a serious physical challange, assisted by the post xmas lack of fitness! While you can follow the wall to the top of Eagle, once you cross the stile heading south you encounter an area that is not a place for an inexperienced navigator in sub 15m visibility. I was feeling a bit fed up with pacing/timing when a peregrine lifted, and lifted my spirits with it. Onward down the length of Eagle, and return via the pigeon rock river valley track to the col/wall between Moughanmore and Pigeon. A second ascent of Pigeon to finish off the legs. The top of Eagle seemed to be very unspoilt, I will definitely be back. A day of contemplation and reverie - my only companions were the peregrine and a couple of small birds. On another positive note, my feet stayed dry and warm after 5 hours of very wet walking - bless you, goretex boots. About 14km, ascent 876m.
