Climbed June 7th – (See Lavagh Beg for previous stage of walk). This section of my nine peak circuit was my least favoured. Despite the fact that the lochs & locheens doted along the valley in front of ‘sruell looked absolutely gorgeous in the midday sunlight. The terrain was a pain in the butt! The descent from Lavagh Beg summit IG 92623 91538 E was fine, a mixture of grass and a few boulders here and there. A ram appeared to take umbrage at my presence in his domain judging by the angry noises it was making, bleating it was not! I could have sworn he was thinking about charging me just for a moment. Anyway, he probably felt in the heat of the day I wasn’t worth it so went after his harem, which had skipped off over a height and disappeared from view at the first sign of me. When I reached the floor of the valley the terrain became more arduous, long tussock grass, marsh, peat hags, rushes – the lot. I noticed a few of the ‘marsh’ areas cordoned off by wire fences, presumably one might sink deeper than the knees in these, so a sensible precaution I’d guess. Having laboured across the valley floor I started the ascent to the summit, which was a minor improvement in terms of terrain. Reached top of plateau and was faced with three areas of high ground vying for summit honours. To my untrained naked eye the middle of the three which slants upwards and tapers to a point, appeared to me to be the highest, however the one to my left (east) appears to be the actual summit, although in terms of height there’s no more than a metre in it. From Binnasruell I turned my attention to my final summit, and the highest in the range, Croaghgorm. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/445/comment/2391/
