Climbed Mweelrea this Summer - same climb as prev photo, but rather misty at the top (see pic 2 & comment 3 for well.. the rather murky wet top!)
Note: We did find the sheep near the summit to be a bit annoying, as things were getting rather steep, yet these animals just run by you like nothing's the matter?!?!?! Gas really!
