I recently returned to Mweelrea with a few mates who were keen to complete their 4 province high points. I had already done Mweelrea back in March, so made the detour to Ben Bury in order to at least get a new peak for myself. It was good we did so as the rain was terrible, visibility was nearly nil, and the wind between Ben Bury and Mweelrea was nearly strong enough to knock you off your feet. Having to be precise on the ramp is actually a help in conditions like this as it is hard to get lost. Its a different matter above as without the GPS we would never have found the summits of Ben Bury and Mweelrea. We were talking to a barman from the west side of the mountain, who was really surprised to hear we did it from the 'backside' as he put it! Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/43/comment/3467/
