Falling Ice
Congratulations to wicklore for thought provoking and timely comments about the danger of ice falling from the mast and supporting guy wires on Truskmore. The possibility of such an occurence was brought home to me yesterday on a walk over Divis (Belfast Hills) which also has a couple of masts surrounded by a double security fence. There was frozen snow cover on much of the fence and as I walked around in the sun shards of ice fell from the masts. While the fence acted as a protection against anyone straying into any possibility of danger the fact that ice was falling certainly made me aware of the potenial for danger in a more open situation such as that described by wicklore. Once again through this mountain comment Mountain Views is to the fore in highlighting an occasion of very real danger for walkers. It is also gratifying to know that on Truskmore a sign had been placed on the access road drawing attention to the possibility of falling ice and the need to keep clear.
