Scary Moments
by Aidy  26 Jun 2016
The middle of the three summits on the Slieve League walk, and although it will rarely be done on its own, like every point on the walk, it has spectacular views. If my memory is right, it would also be the slopes of this summit where the lower of the two candidates for "One Man's Pass" can be found. It seems be becoming accepted to refer to the higher of the two, leading over to Slieve League's main summit as One Man's Pass, and to the lower one, on the southern side of Slieve League South-East Top as One Man's Path, to differentiate the two. One Man's Pass, we found to be easy with no feeling of danger. We missed One Man's Path on the way up, taking an obvious path below the ridge, but from above we could see it easily and decided to tackle it on the way down, which was possibly more difficult. Initially, everything was fine, but there is one short stretch that I admit to finding very scary. I went down it on my backside with my heart in my mouth, and having done it, don't think I would venture down it again. At one point, my water bottle got pushed out of its holder and dropped down the cliff on my right side for hundreds of meters. I couldn't help thinking it was showing me the route my body would take if I lost my balance! In the photo, the difficult stretch is between the leftmost person, and the person sitting down in the middle of the frame. Easily avoided if this type of exposure is not your cup of tea.
