MOURNES CONSTRUCTION - A BIGGER PICTURE
It is good to have maclimber back in this debate to give it some equilibrium. Other mountain views for the moment comprise those against, those balanced and those undecided. His is the only one (so far) “for” the enterprise and necessary for a complete debate. Those of us “against” I think, are motivated generally by the heart and what the hills mean to us. For myself I have no delusions about this nor am I in any way embarrassed by it, but perhaps it does need an equivalent argument from the head. There have been posed many relevant and important questions in this debate. Mountainviewers emp123, dhmiriam, kernowclimber and mcritchly have suggested some questions should be answered. Brenno’s clean and balanced piece, cautious as it is, maybe not directly but maybe indirectly presents some questions if only implicit. If we want a rounded debate, the case “for” should be supported. I would ask maclimber to come back on all or some of these questions for the sake of balance. Aside, I apologise to any mountainviewers who have no interest in this matter and the participants might take the thing offside in due course but for the moment I hope you agree it is worth sticking with.

The NE spur off Lackabane is something of a knife edge, descending steeply and with even steeper sides. Watch it on a poor day.
