St Stephens day 2004 and a truly white christmas.
There is something about climbing in fresh snow with a gale blowing and 20/30 mtrs visibility.
Climbing in these conditions with just your own wits and the contents of your rucksack to keep you safe must be one of the last great freedoms accessible to most of us.
The photo shows Cush through a rare break in the cloud from near the summit of Galtymore. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/215/comment/1373/

On 23/10/04 we approached a cloud covered Cush from the col below Galtybeg. As we reached the top the clouds cleared to reveal this view of Galtymore. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/215/comment/1279/

Driving away from the Galtees the morning after I climbed them, I drove through the Glen of Aherlow and saw this wonderful mist hanging in the Glen. Cush is the cone shaped mountain in the middle, with Galtybeg to the right, and Galtymore to the right again. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/215/comment/2103/

Climbed Cush last Sunday 19-3-06 .Started from car park beside Clydagh river R875 278 A.
Magnificient day, so clear. I came down opposite Galtybeg. and then i went up to look at BorheenLake (the eyedrop),I retraced my steps , turned west back to the car park. I had not
climbed Cush for over five years and i was surprised to find a track almost all the way up to the summit. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/215/comment/2241/
