New Comment: Mórsheisear sa cheo / magnificent seven in the fog
by pdtempan  8 Nov 2020
Bhí mórsheisear againn a dhreap sa cheo inniu ón Bhearnas go dtí mullach Chreig na Madaí. Leanamar Bealach Lár Shliabh Speirín ar feadh cuid mhaith den tsiúlóid, ach chuamar amach thar thalamh garbh (portach agus fraoch) chun barr an chnoic. Ní raibh sé furasta an fíormhullach a fháil agus fuaramar tuairiscí a rinne daoine eile ar an chnoc seo an-chruinn. Níor ghlan an ceo ach go hachomair chun radharc a thabhairt dúinn ar Ghleann Aichle nuair a bhíomar ag leanúint an iomaire suas go dtí an mullach, agus ansin ina dhiaidh sin bhí radharcanna againn i dtreo an Ghoirtín agus muid ag teacht anuas. Bhí breis agus 4 uair an chloig de dhíth orainn le haghaidh an tsiúlóid mar gheall ar an tír-raon deacair agus an gá le bealach a aimsiú go cúramach sa cheo, ach bhí siúlóid an-dheas againn.

We were seven intrepid souls who ventured today in the fog from Barnes Gap to the summit of Craignamaddy. We followed the Central Sperrins Way for much of the walk, but headed out over rough ground (bog and heather) to reach the top. The summit was not easy to distinguish and we found other members description of this peak very accurate. The fog only lifted briefly to give us a view of Glenelly when we were following the ridge up to the summit, and then later we had views towards Gortin as we descended. The walk took over 4 hours due to the difficult terrain and the need to navigate carefully in the fog, but we had a very enjoyable walk. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/861/comment/21275/
