The big one!!!
by Colin Murphy  30 May 2016
The was a big one in every sense of the word for me - my final Arderin!!!! I started this quest sometime in the mid-to-late nineties, so I reckon its taken me close to twenty years, but what was the rush? My daughter kindly anticipated the event and had a T-shirt printed to mark the event. Thanks to my friend Madfrankie for all his suggestions regarding routes etc down the years and for all the times I was too cold to take my hands from my pockets so left the navigating to him! Thanks also to Simon Stewart for providing the website that allows us to log our climbs, which really helps to provide a target to work towards and the necessary information to actually get out on to the hills. Anyway, one list completed, on to the County Highpoints and Vandeleur-Lynam! Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/34/comment/18547/
