Harry Goodman on Torc Mountain W Top, 2009

I went out to this top with two friends from the path up Torc Mt (7 Sept. 09). Apart from the fact that it took us a little longer than the 20 minutes out and back suggested by Conor74 I have no comments to add to those made by him and simply want to include a picture for the site. We included this top on a walk up Torc Mt. and found the scenery in all directions splendid, especially after a week-end of walking on the higher tops in stormy, wet conditions with no visability. Well worth the visit. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/550/comment/4086/
