david bourke on Ben Goram, 2006

In January 2006 I climbed Croagh Patrick, with some fellow travellers from Sligo, via Ben Goram. The initial ascent is quite a stiff pull up and on the day in question it was not helped by the strong icy winds. However the surrounding views more than compensated. The route is less frequented that the pilgrim way and you are more likely to find yourself alone as you climb. The terrain is mainly peat and is thankfully not eroded. Let us hope it stays that way in the future. The picture was taken looking back towards Ben Goram on the final ascent of Croagh Patrick. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/345/comment/2556/
