Climbing Cloudy Mayo Mountain
by jimhol53  10 Oct 2013
Climbed Mweelrea Mountain on Saturday October 5th 2013 with my son Philip: I am doing the Highest Peaks Challange and finishing this one made it just three to go. Using information from 'Ireland's County High Points' by Kieron Cribbon, as a guide, found said info for this climb the best so far. Sometimes it can be difficult to find the starting point for these climbs.
The first part of the climb from the starting point to the Col was done in 100% visibility, however, low-lying cloud obscured the rest of the climb which was very frustrating after reading about the spectacular views on offer at the summit. having said that, the climb was challenging and enjoyable. Passing carefully through the thick cloud, we found the summit (complete with Mayo colours!) and lamented about the lost views. One question I would have would be, considering the windy conditions of the day were absent when on the summit, is there any way of forcasting these low-lying clouds or is it pure chance?
