Wet and Wonderful

We climbed Lackavrea in January after a few days of rain. The walk was boggy for quite a bit but once you get past the first 500m or so and onto the hill it is not too bad. The climb itself was fine, a couple of parts required a bit of a scramble. There is a fence that goes all the way to the top and we found that following it was the most direct route. The view is amazing, the Partry mountains to the North, Lough Mask and Lough Corrib to the East, Lough Manwee and many lakes to the south, The twelve bens to the west and a view of the sea. Unbelievable!!! Coming down was a bit tricky with the wet ground but overall I would recommend this climb. It took about 2 1/2 hours up and down.
