Maumturks Challenge part 4
by TommyV  2 Nov 2018
On paper this section looks like it is the easiest part of the challenge as most of the hard climbing is done. But for tired legs, the mental challenge of the route really kicks in. A series of drops and climbs from Maumturkmore over to Maell Cheo makes every single metre look like 10 and feel like 100. The steep descend to Leenaun can really be felt in the legs. A beast of a challenge but one for any bucket list. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1412/comment/20169/
