St Stephens Day seems to draw folk to climb Galtymore.
2004 saw the first truly white christmas than I can remember, so we had to head for the mountains.
We arrived (after much slipping on icy roads ) and started up the black road at 9.20 am.
The morning promised so much and Galtymore was fairly clear all the way up to the end of the black road then suddenly we were covered in cloud and the wind rose.This held all the way up Galtymore and most of the ways back down again with very few breaks.On the summit we got out the trangia and had tea and mince pies . Going back down was a battle to stay vertical with snow covering rocks and bogholes. I had to wonder at the number of people climbing in all sorts of clothing (reflector jackets/jeans/runners) who asked us was it "much further to the top" or " which way is Galtymore" in freezing conditions with 20/30 mtrs visibility.
But anyway what a great days walking - thoroughly enjoyable!!!!
