First time to the summit!
by Katie07  16 Mar 2015
On a sunny Saturday in March'15 we made our first climb to the summit of Galtybeg and well worth the trek! Had attempted the climb a couple of weeks earlier but the weather prevented us from getting anywhere near the top. So would only recommend making the trip on a clear day to make the most of the fabulous views from the top. It took us 2 hrs to reach the summit and 1.5hrs to descend.
