If there were more Bleck Cra's
I wouldn't classify myself as either experienced or novice in the mountains, but one thing i have learnt is, listen to others on the mountainside! I always enjoy reading EVERYBODY'S comments, but I am wondering has Bleck Cra been published? If so, what's the title, and if not why not? One of the recent posts by our good friend was about some know it alls in the Mournes, and how they were not so happy about getting some advice! A few years ago, weather forecast was to be clear and sunny, I found myself struggling to find my way back down Bearnagh with visibility down to a few metres, the wall was a great help, but even more so, I met two "locals"who saw me down to Hares Gap, and after a shared coffee and some buns as a way of thank you, they continued on towards Donard, while I decided to head for home. I was a novice in those days, I have many mountains now under my feet, but as I spread my wings and walk through spectacular landscape on La Gomera in the Canaries, Serra de Tramantona in Mallorca, the West Highlands of Scotland, and very soon - the Bernese Oberland those two strangers I met in the Mournes always stick in my mind, they came out from the mist, guided me down to safety and then went on their way, I probably would have been fine, but for those few tense momments I was glad of the advice, it encouraged me to go further, and now on occasion I give advice when asked by strangers to my well trodden paths! Keep walking Bleck Cra, and keep giving advice, I certainly would welcome avdice in a place I didn't know!!
