Finally conquered!
by mcrtchly  25 Jul 2011
Following months of meticulous planning by our expedition leader (Wicklore), numerous setbacks, mountainous seas (well almost calm) and wild animals (mostly magnificent seabirds) a team of intrepid Mountainviewers have finally conquered the summit of Puffin Island. Others have given ample reports on the trip so I've just attached a picture to prove that we did it! I should also record that Wicklore was quite rightly the first to summit. Many thanks to him for organising and leading the visit and to the boatmen in their expertise in getting us to land and to return safely. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1049/comment/6431/
