Really worth a visit !!

Celebrating my 100th summit of the VL-Arderin list on Peakeen Mountain W Top about one month ago (thank you for the hike and the pics, Conor74 !!). The area, despite being quite close to Kenmare and having the Kerry Way running along nearby, has remained unspoiled and offers a certain sensation of wilderness and remoteness, with some extensive views all around.
