First of a blitz of CHP's for the weekend
by paddyobpc  24 Jan 2017
Walk Date: 05 Jun 2016. Dillon(dillonkdy), my sister Helen and I set out early on the morning of 05 Jun with the goal of completing 3 CHP’s and continuing on the 06th Jun with another 5. Our first was Truskmore and arriving at the start point travelling from Cork meant we needed to have some food before setting off on the transmitter road around noon. It was a very hot day and while the route is very straightforward it is quite steep, a total of 463m. Around half way up a cyclist passed us, challenging his muscles to the extreme, he was just leaving the top when we arrived at the summit. That was Sligo’s CHP done. We got the necessary picture at the trig before heading over to Truskmore SE Cairn. See Dillon’s (dillonkdy) full story of his County High Point Challenge at https://dillons32chpchallenge.github.io/progress/index.html We also found Kieron Gribbon's High Point Ireland website (www.highpointireland.com) to be a useful source of information for our 32 County High Points challenge. Definitely worth checking out if you're planning to do any of the High Point challenges. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/201/comment/18810/
