PMG Walk 75 - Croaghaun Summits in mad wind!Day 17 in the hills! I was camped on Keel beach last night and the wind was blowing a gale. The old Berlingo was rocked like a toy car all night. I was woken up many times by wind and sand hitting the car. It was certainly a fitful sleep. In the morning I knew I was racing against the clock before the rain would reach us from the South. The wind was even stronger as I set off up towards Benmore and it's ridge of cliffs that drop down into the sea. With amazing cliffs on my left and with high winds from my right it was a windy experience! Then off up Croaghaun South West Top and Croaghaun main summit. The wind at the top was absolutely terrible! Standing up straight was difficult and all the while I had a sharp eye of the looming drop to my left. Needless to say I actually had a great time and it's so funny how it can be more fun in wild weather than in calm weather. With that said the views when I had them were stunning but from the summit I only had fleeting views.On my descent a few rain drops started to fall and I cut short the walk by descending earlier than planned to Keem beach. Today's walk was short and I got to stay dry too in the end! Timing is everything they say! Two more summits done and the count is now at 76 summits to go! The rest of the day will be spent on planning some routes for the Sligo area and of course a little R&R too, the body is in need of a little rest for sure!
