A Dom Divilly Film
by CaptainVertigo  21 Feb 2015
Dom Divilly has built up an impressive body of mountain film work on YouTube . He generally films small group walks with a special emphasis on gully ascents and scrambling. "Hags Tooth and Beenkeragh Ridge May 25th 2014" is a no frills exposition of an ascent to Beenkeragh via Hag's Tooth. The video does exactly what it says on the the tin: you get to see precisely the kind of challenge that's involved, with plenty of places requiring hands as well as feet. What I find really helpful (since I came to Beenkeragh from the Hydro Road and have yet to climb Hag's Tooth) is getting to see what's involved "up close and personal". Dom shows the work involved in the ascent, as well as the views. Sadly. the mist seemed to come down to about 700 metres so what began as a clear day ended up in a fog. No harm to be reminded of the conditions that can prevail up there. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/193/comment/17851/
