A grand day out in the west
by eamonoc  3 Feb 2019
A Christmas gift had deposited me in the luxury of the Westport Woods Hotel for the weekend, so with some time to spare decided to Traverse the Croagh Patrick Range from East to west, after a very Cold and frosty friday night drove out the R335 to Belclare Bridge. Had to walk up to Western way from here as the side roads were treacherously slippy, the climb up from the Western Way to Crott Mountain was fairly tough as there was Knee deep snow most of the way . From Crott Towards Lugnademon And Croagh Patrick there was plenty of snow to contend with but the day was fantastic with blue sky`s and Sunshine. Met a few people on Croagh Patrick then headed west towards Ben Goram, got hit with a fairly bad snow shower, the sky darkened and visibility was down to a few mts for about 15mins, but once cleared a return to blue skys and sunshine made for a fantastic finish to a wonderful experience, have had some great days out on Mountains both in Ireland and further afield but Saturday rivalled any of them. During the traverse on Saturday I reached a small Milestone as I visited my 1000th Mountainviews listed feature. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/345/comment/20396/
