Re: Lug or Djouce in the cold
Hi Conor74. I'd suggest Lug from Glen of Imaal. The route starts at Fentons pub and follows a minor road until the trek uphill starts. It's a fairly straightforward route up Camerahill and on to Lug. Starting at 200 metres altitude it's a 725 metres ascent over about 7 kms distance. It can be a tiring bog trot, so allow 3 hours up and 2 and a half hours down. There are other routes but this is a good one in winter for someone unaccustomed to Wicklow. Beware that the summit of Lug is a broad plateau and it's not easy to find the route off in poor weather. Also, remember our mountaineering friends who started to climb Lug after 3pm in winter a couple of years ago. They mislaid their map and got stranded in the snow. It resulted in one of the biggest mountain rescue operations in Irish history, with rescue teams and helicopters from as far as Wales searching for about 24 hours before they were safely found. The lesson for us all is if doing a 6 hour hike, start more than 6 hours before it gets dark! (unless prepared and able for a night hike). And don't let the map blow away! Good luck completing the last of the Irish 900 metre mountains!
