I had a great day out on Mullaghcarn today, as it was chosen by Simoburn, as his final summit in an amazing completion of all the Vandeleur-Lynams and Arderins in one year. A group of MountainViews users, along with some of Simon's friends and relatives, turned up to accompany him on his walk to mark the achievement, and it was a privilege to do so. The mountain itself is not difficult, with a road all the way to the mast-crowned top, and was specifically chosen by Simon so that non-hill walkers would be able to come along. Well worth the climb on any occasion though, as the views are great, and we were lucky enough to get a winter wonderland and some dramatic clouds at the summit. Its the first time I have been presented with a beaker of champagne at the summit too, something to be recommended I feel!

The photo shows some of the group making their way to the cloudy top with Simon. Congratulations to you Simon for a great feat. I took plenty of photos, and I'll post a link here on MV, to a blog entry, when I get them all sorted. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/371/comment/17773/
