ahendroff on Aghla Beg (South), 2009
by ahendroff  27 Aug 2009
Wed 26 Aug 2009, 3pm Aghla Beg (South) summit was my last 600m MV top. Nothing more to climb all now lower than that magic 600m mark. Full of joy inside, tho' slightly muted outside. Different emotions from when I finished the 2,000 footers in 2006. Don't know why. Perhaps the first time's the sweetest? Like my last 2,000 footer (ironically also in Donegal), the "curse" of the last summit returns - zero views. Progress nearly stopped by normally benign stream that metamorphed into a raging river. Boots off. Step in. Water almost waist high, and I'm 6ft 1. Weather unforgiving - low cloud base all day, misty, prolonged light rain, wind 20mph gusting to 35mph, winds NW/WNW blasted straight at Aghla's. Sharp contrast to walk day before in the Bluestacks. Sharp contrast on return as well. Car window smashed, door handle damaged, door doesn't open, shattered glass everywhere ... on the seats , on the mats. 1,263 euro worth of damaged so was I told by the repairers. Nothing disturbed or taken from car. Not even MP3. Odd. Never experienced such nonsense on R251 at base of Mackoght in years of hillwalking. Normally safest place to be. Effects of reccession? Yeah, any excuse. These low-lifes and time-wasters are disturbed. Sick in the mind. Get a job. Life's got more to offer. But will they ever realise their talents? Sadly, realistically - no. Whenever I venture into the hills or mountains, some people I know tease out safety issues. Tho' I always feel the mountains and hills are the safest place to be. The unforgiving world of man is what I worry about.... for me the message definitely hit home tis' day. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/266/comment/4057/
