Did the route from Glenbarrow to Monickview. It lashed rain for the whole day and conditions extremely wet underfoot. No pictures cos couldn't see more than 5 metres. Twas the Summer of '09 ! Do not do this route unless dry spell before hand. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/505/comment/4068/
