Wet But Worth It
by Aidy  15 Feb 2016
It seemed like the first decent weather in months, so taking the chance to get a few more of the local 100 in the bag, I set off for Binnasruell, Silver Hill and Cullaghacro. Starting from near Point A in the comments, I avoided the steeper slopes nearer the summit of Binnasruell, at the expense of a longer walk. Once up on the ridge, it was just a matter of heading east over the minor summits to the top. The weather may have been better than recent months but the effects of a long wet winter were still apparent, and this was one of the wettest walks I've ever been on, and it seemed a longer and harder hike than I'd been expecting. Despite the sunshine, it was bitterly cold at the top too, and photographs up there were paid for with numb hands even after only seconds with gloves off. Worth any hardship however to be getting a decent run out after such a long spell with only a couple of brief forays since November due to rain.
