Silliness in Torridon
Simon's contribution of Richard Smith's experiene in Torridon sounds extreme..., your man James seems the total four letter chap. My feeling is that without Richard's intervention it was an MR job. Speaking as someone who is generally helped through these experiences, having someone to show you that there is a possibility of survival can be crucial to making you move at all. In any case, if I've got to be helped out I've the grace to admit it.

Not that you'd find me encouraging anyone to go dancing around Liathach. Torridon is wonderful but I was almightily glad that the day I did the Horns, visibilty was zero and I could ignore the abysmal depths. It's a bit pathetic but last week on Mull I encountered three lads on the A' Chioch ridge making the whining noises that are usually my speciality and for once got feeling a bit smug.

Aidand's directions are spot on. The road that looks like an entrance to a house actually leads into a forest, it is rough but manageable if you drive very slow. I drove as far as an old abandoned...

Collaborative entry Last edit by: Peter Walker 3 weeks ago.
You can start at Ballaghisheen, a mountain pass V671 792. Space here for 3-4 cars. Ballaghisheen is at just over 300m so the climb to the top at around 551m is not a great strain. There is a sign ...

Nothing to add to simon3's directions. Like quite a few of the hills in North Tipperary, this one is through a Coilte forest track to begin with and then the tough push through some horrible groun...
