MountainViews.ie Picture about mountain Arderin in area Slieve Bloom, Ireland
Picture: Photo showing ground level OS marker and nearby cairn
 
Harry Goodman on Arderin, 2009
by Harry Goodman  26 Sep 2009
The route up from the Glendine Gap described in other comments on Arderin is simple and straight forward. However given paulocon's comments about climbing to a mist covered summit I thought it worthwhile pointing out that the OS marker mentioned by simon3 is in fact at ground level and is not a raised column as would normally be expected. There is however a cairn of stones nearby. Both are shown in the photo. Murphysw will be pleased to know that Cormac Carroll's graffitti still proclaims him King of the Mountain.
