Walk of the Year 2015
First, thank you aidand for the suggestion, and Happy New Year to everyone !!
2015 has been my busiest year in the Irish hills since I really got back into hillwalking in November 2012. I have done many amazing walks over the past year, including the Coomloughra Horseshoe anticlockwise, two 10h-trips through the Slieve Mish and Central Dingle mountains, a fabulous traverse on Achill, etc...
But I would say my Walk of the Year 2015 is the Ben Lugmore-Mweelrea loop I completed in July; first because I did it with my good friend Wilderness; but also because I had been up Mweelrea, starting from the W in September 2005, but I was never sure I had reached the top at the time due to the terrible weather conditions I endured during the last part of the ascent. Being back there after such a long time -this time under clear skies to admire the breathtaking 360° vista- was a very special moment.
I can remember being slightly nervous at the beginning of the walk. I knew it was going to be a tough one. Fantastic feeling to reach and follow Ben Lugmore's ridge. Amazing feeling of emotion and self-accomplishment to reach Mweelrea, ten years after my first attempt, which had been followed a few days later by my first big walk, the (almost complete) Glencoaghan Horseshoe. To sum it up, ten years after I really started to be addicted to hillwalking in Ireland.
If it hadn't been for Mweelrea, I wouldn't be aiming at completing the +500m Irish MV list today. And I probably wouldn't be a member of this amazing site... ;-)
