Walked it in heavy mist on Sun 29-3-09. Snow still on the north side of the wall. Very cold windy up there but great. Had the tea sheltering behind the wall. Then down my Knockaterriff, where we proceeded to get lost by walking in the mist into pigeon rock glen. Spotted the pigeon rosk river seemed to be flowing the wrong direction, and realised it was not the blackrock river, and rectified the error. Moral go slower and read map and compass even more the denser the fog gets. All in all a great day. There was 7 of us Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/29/comment/3696/
