Kings Gully Summit
by swoop  10 Jan 2011
Enjoyed a walk up Kings Mountain via the gully approach towards large rock slide. Simple walk, but quite steep in places , grass was slippy and we needed mini cramps for grip. At the Summit we entered the deep rock crevasse which leads to a deep cave / rock climbing face. The crevasse was very slippy and a lot of recent rock fall / land slides made it a bit off putting. A lot of ice up there and potential for more land slides I reckon.
Excellent warm sunset over Sligo Town. Decended at approx 3.40pm , which was too late , and poor light made for a confused route down our approach route, following zig zag sheep trails in near darkness. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/573/comment/6200/
