Headed to the top of Arderin from the car park at Glendine Gap. From there it is a distance of 700 metres and a climb of 90 metres appox to the summit. At a time when other mountain ranges were reasonably dry, Arderin proved to be damp. This photo shows the view returning to Glendine Gap. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/399/comment/1998/
