Exhausting, But Worth It
by Aidy  13 Apr 2015
Cronamuck was my third peak of this walk, having started north of Lough Eske, and already taken in Croaghbarnes and Meenanea. I am constantly amazed at the length of some of the walks undertaken by members here, but I can only judge my efforts by my own standards, and I found this walk very tiring over difficult ground. But, the stage from Meenanea to Cronamuck was probably the easiest part of the walk, and the extra distance was so short, it would have been inconceivable not to do it. Especially since I'd failed to reach Cronamuck on a previous attempt from the north. As Simon had predicted in his Short Summary, the rivers on that approach had proved impassable after a period of heavy rains. Those same rivers now viewed from the summit, provided some of the best views, along with the many other surrounding peaks. It had been a thoroughly enjoyable walk, but it was hard going on the way back. I avoided the ascent and descent of Croaghbarnes on the return leg, staying on low ground on its southern side, but this was probably equally hard - boggy, with tussocky grass. As usual, when I got back to the car, I was exhausted but very happy. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/638/comment/17929/
