Grayarea on Slievemore, 2007
by Grayarea  13 Mar 2007
Arrived at the deserted village at about 9:45 and followed the track up to the western end of Slievemore. We headed to the northern side of the ridge due to a very stiff south easterly wind that blew us over several times during the ascent.
We got on top by 12:23 F65032 08675 A after a couple of breaks to take photos and drink hot coffee! Fantastic views from the top with some orographic cloud forming over our heads for effect. We could not stop for our lunch on top due to wind so found a little break in some rocks a hundred or so meters back down on the north western side again.
After descending to about three hundred meters we took the quick way down directly south towards the deserted village again. Got back to the car after a nice four hour hike. Great mountain, easy access and fantastic views, what more could you want?
