New Comment: Great views and a nice challenge
by cormacs  4 Oct 2018
Great views and a nice challenge. We were lucky to have climbed this mountain at the end of the dry summer that was 2018. We walked across from Binn Bhán after starting at point B in the map. In places the going was boggy even though there had been little rain in the preceeding months so I’d imagine that in winter or a normal summer the ground would be very boggy.
