Clermont was the second summit in my 5 peak hike .. by dr_banuska   (Show all for Clermont)

(Continued from Anglesey Mountain) I made a bee-line from Anglesey Mountain to Clermont. The heather got quite high and energy-sapping as I neared this last top. From the summit, I made straight for the corner of forestry and along the edge of the forest to the hairpin bend, and so back up the road to my bike. By now I was exhausted. Fortunately it was mostly downhill to Newry, but the few small stretches of uphill around Clontygora and Fathom were killers. At the first available shop on the outskirts of Newry, I refuelled on Lucozade and Snickers, and the sugar-rush restored my energy for the last couple of miles to the station. A great day out, 5 new peaks bagged plus Slieve Foye again, but what a brilliant invention heather-proof socks would be! Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/639/comment/3808/
