Looking down into the Hags glen along the Beenkeragh ridge after a fantastic climb that started at V 820 855 F keeping the Hags Teeth to the left. The snow, which started at approx 400m, was very deep at places. So it was on with the crampons an got the ice ax out. It was a very hard climb under these circumstances. Temperature on the summit was around -10 with a gale blowing, so I won't even try to guess what the wind chill added to this. On the way down I visited Stumpa an tSiamh (I think its called Coomcallee on OSi 78) which was a hard scramble to get up on and descent off again. When I arrived back in Glenbeigh, I heard there was a person gone missing that day on the other side of the ridge!!! Makes you think....and plan carefully Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/22/comment/4087/
