MountainViews.ie Picture about mountain Arderin in area Slieve Bloom, Ireland
csd on Arderin, 2004

On a glorious evening of 10.08.04 we followed the route described by oyke up to the summit of Arderin. A bagger's delight, it is possible to march up and down in 30 mins if you're determined. The track up from the Slieve Bloom Way is a bit eroded, but at least the resulting scar is mercifully narrow. The views from the summit are indeed excellent, as can be seen from the photo which shows the summit cairn and a forlorn tree nearby. The OS marker is embedded into the bog just in front and to the left of the cairn. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/399/comment/1080/
