New Comment: Blooming awful
by Colin Murphy  3 Sep 2021
Simple to reach, but the last 100m when you leave the faint track is a leg-wearying trudge through knee-high heather over uneven ground. Featureless summit and utterly drab. The nearest thing to a summit marker is a stick someone jammed into the turf. The Slieve Blooms aren't the most dramatic hills by any means, and Barcam is probably the most uninspiring. One for the baggers. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/504/comment/23257/
