Meindl Air Revolution Lite or Scarpa SLs?
Have a voucher for Jackson Sports, need to use it today or tomorrow - last year's present! Anyway, had Meindl Island Pro for the past few years, but they are coming to the end of their life, one of the lace eyelets has just burst. Might get some repair job and retire them for the occasional crampon use, but gotta buy new ones and these both in my price range and on sale.

The main issue for me would be water resistance. I seem to be constantly standing in water around these parts, bar the trips across the Reeks when the rocks really wear the soles. The Island Pros were great, feet stayed dry in streams. So anyone out there know which might be best?

Lackakeely: An easy bag after Mweelrea
magnumpig 9 hours ago.
Mweelrea is a sweaty old climb (for me anyways) and if, like me, you feel that climbing it deserves bagging more than one peak, you should visit Lackaleely. Basically it's a small rise overlooking...

As mentioned by Bunsen7, the entrance to the windfarm is the best way to access this hill. Note that there are signs saying no unauthorized access but isn't that always the way. I did come across ...

No excuse not to come over here for a peek if you are at Truskmore, so that's what we did and it's worth it for the extra view.
