Exceeding Expectations
by Aidy  5 Mar 2014
Having once again failed to reach the top of Croaghanirwore due to whiteout conditions on Croaghnageer, I was dispiritedly making my way down Brown's Hill, heading for the N15, when the lashing rain stopped, and the clouds cleared a little. I decided to retrieve something from the day, and make for Cloghervaddy instead. From Brown's Hill, the East side of the hill looked ominously steep, so I aimed for the Southwestern slope. The intervening ground was sodden, and the going difficult through thick grass and peat hags, until typically for the Bluestacks, a bit of altitude brought rocky ground and easier walking. The summit itself, marked by a small cairn perched on a larger rock, was an unexpected delight. My heart had been set on Croaghanirwore, but the twisted rocks on top of this smaller hill made a fantastic landscape. The views were also magnificent for only 402m. My spirits were raised again, so much so that I made for Croaghbrack too, only a small detour on my way back to the carpark on the N15. It would be easy to ignore this peak in favour of its many larger neighbours, but its worth a visit. Interestingly, setting out earlier in the day, along the forestry track towards Brown's Hill, I found myself in the midst of a husky sled race.
