Worth Adding To Multi-Summit Walk
by Aidy  15 Feb 2016
My third summit of the day after Binnasruell and Silver Hill, and after months of virtual inactivity over a very wet few months, it had been a harder walk than I'd expected over already difficult ground left sodden over the previous prolonged rains. It had been freezing cold too regardless of the sunny day. Despite it all, it was exhilarating to be out again, and the weather, with sun breaking through occasional clouds, showed the landscape at its best. Cullaghacro was also easy to take in on the way back to the car (see comment for Binnasruell for starting point), and it was a short drop down from Silver Hill, and an even shorter climb up to the summit marked by a small cairn. My feet were so wet at this stage that I was impervious to the boggy ground, and there was no point in skirting pools - straight through now as I couldn't get any wetter. As on the earlier summits, nothing could dampen my spirits, and Cullaghacro opened up fresh views despite its small stature. It was then another boggy stretch to the windmills below, where I could take advantage of the access road, glad of the dry, even ground for a spell. I stayed on it for a short distance before heading almost directly south up on the Binnasruell ridge again, then descending to the car with its welcome heater. Great to be back in the mountains.
