tsunami on Slieve Binnian North Tor, 2005
by tsunami  8 Jan 2005
Here is a view of the North Tor on approach from Binnians Summit. I reached the summit following the wall from Carrick Little - easily the best route to tackle Binnian on. It's probably too hard to see after reduction for the web, but the little white dots to the left of it's base are actually a group of six men taking a well earned rest during the Mourne "Seven Seven's". I was happier to carry on at my leisure and spend some time exporing the summits - but some day I may be convinced to take part. My opinion at the moment though is that these type of events put a lot of unnecessary strain on the Mountain environment and need to continue to be very tightly run and regulated. If any one here does take part please correct me if things are not as bad as I make them out be. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/156/comment/1411/
