Unlike Cra I've problems with murphysw's approach. I'm glad he's written it, it's definitely a point of view. But speaking as an essentially timid character, I don't want someone frightening me in advance, my imagination is up to the job on its own. My friends are used to me staring like a frightened rabbit along a ridge where I've read an over-realistic description. I always get along it but they get fed up with the whining. Mweelrea is big, beautiful and challenging and there are numerous points where care is required. But I'd not hesitate to recommend it to anyone who was halfway competent, solo or otherwise. You should feel you're up to navigation in mist before you do it but that can be true of far easier hills. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/34/comment/2997/
