Peter Walker on Gearhane, 2007

It's a long, joint-mangling descent from Gearhane to the foot of the Derrymore Glen; in retrospect, it's probably better to do Bautregaum to Gearhane in the other direction, and then descend the glen. Either way, a beautiful walk on a clear day. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/47/comment/2825/
