This was the great day that was . . . on the Knockmealdown Crossing (or A Walk) 2015 as hosted by the Peaks Mountaineering Club.
This year's Chllenge Walk was traversed from East to West.
Starting at Goatenbridge, then heading towards the Liam Lynch Monument and then onwards over the ridge of the Knockmealdown Mountains.
The Vee (Bay Lough Car Park) occurs at around the half-way mark in distance - yet at this stage (travelling Est to West) near on two third of the day's ascent has been completed.
This year the walk finished out with a gentle end down into The Community Hall, Ballyporeen.
The weather on this year's Challenge (2015) had biting cold temperatures that lended to the most magnificent of views!
Jim Holmes.
