A step in the right direction
by Colin Murphy  3 Sep 2021
While amused by Peter Walker's description of his attempts to clamber over 'the peat bank of doom', I approached it with some trepidation, yet was pleased to see that some enterprising individual had jammed two pieces of slate into the bank to act as steps, making the task of surmounting it a great deal easier. They'll probably fall off in heavy rain, but still... On the hill itself, nice wildflowers, colourful moss, but little else...a trudge up through boggy ground and prodding forest to a small clearing with zero views. Oh well, at least I was up and down in 25 minutes. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/796/comment/23260/
