Ascent Trip Report

My second ascent of the highest mountain in Northern Ireland.

This time the whole family succeeded from Newcastle via the Glen River path despite the rather dreary weather and absence of views. The two fastest members of the group also made a side trip up Slieve Commedagh to boost our total of Irish Marilyns.
