If you are taking the approach from behind the Adventure Centre in Delphi and you plan to follow the course of the river, make sure that you stay close to the river bank. Otherwise you will get bogged down! It is tempting to proceed as the crow flies to reach the first ascent but not advisable as we learned on saturday last. This is a trully remarkable range with Killary on one side and Doolough on the other. Views of the Atlantic make it even more spectacular. Highly recommended.
